Das Mutant Ninja Crustacean... LESS filling! TASTES great!
By Pete Gray
Well, maybe sometimes...
Tyed conservatively, the wimpy negative ballast will cause a gentle swim to the safety of the bottom...
I prefer a clear intermediate line... with no startling distinctive black fly line laying on the sand to inspire a paranoia attack...
In shallow water, "Striped predators" are already very cautious and spooky!
A slow retrieve and occasional twitch to spark the interest of approaching diners works for me...
Just try to stay tight or at least in contact with the fly...
Under ideal conditions, the TAKE can be quite pleasingly "visual"...
And now you literally have an inspirational case of the crabz...
