Default crawdad imitation

Who makes a good crawdad imitation? And is the imitation really that important?

If I'm recalling correctly, do a search for "lobster hatch" on this site and you should find a pattern and report on one version.

Thank you Knute for the imfo. I'm going to set out today to get a couple different patterns and hopefully I can find the ones noted.

Colvin's tie is pretty sweet and obviously catches fish but they do not need to be that specific. A tube jig has probably accounted for more for more craw eating fish caught than any other lure, and its entire body is cylindrical with (cut)tentacle ends. Even a bugger or a muddler can be fished as a crawdad. The imitiation is more suggestive than specific.

I've fished with my hometied and store bought patterns and have found a beadhead, conehead or weighted Wooly Bugger weighted toward the eyelet works just as good.
