    Just to confirm I caught a few and put them on and caught three grunter in 5 casts.

    My first attempt at imitating one of these crabs.
    Not the best picture.
    Also tied a goby and prawn.

    For a first attempt, it is a good start.
    The pinchers on the one side might get your fly to spin.
    Try tying it facing either backwards or forwards.
    When a crab defends itself, it will be facing the attacker and move slowly backwards.
    So it might be a good idea to have the pinchers to the bend of the hook
