SandBar Crab

Visit the Sandbar Flies Website: http://www.sandbarflies.com
The Sandbar Crab fly is a great fly from the Louisiana marsh to the Florida panhandle. The claws on this crab extend out to act like a crab in a defensive position. Redfish, pompano and sheepshead will eat the Sandbar Crab. This fly is tied on a #1 34007 mustad hook with a slight bend at the eye of the hook to ensure the fly swims and lands on the bottom hook point up.

Simple Yarn Crab Bodies

Fly Tying Tip - Simple Yarn Crab BodiesTying crab flies for bonefish and permit can often be intimidating for anglers because of the complexity of most patterns. One of my favorite crab pattern's is Cathy Beck's Fleeing Crab which we have used in the Bahamas and Belize for bones, permit, and even some baby tarpon. The body of this pattern is made from EP Fibers (antron works too) and they are typically tied in using a "figure 8" style technique which is good, but that technique tends to bind the fibers down of the previous clump of yarn.
