Turniffe Crab Fly

The Turniffe Crab Fly is a permit catching standard in the waters of Belize, Honduras, Mexico and the Caribbean. I have even heard of a few Keys guides throwing this crab pattern around. I like the fact that this fly can be tied heavy or light, big or small and with any color a little crab can be.

There are a lot of permit, bonefish and tarpon swimming around in the Florida Keys. Every one of them will eat a crab that plops right in front of them. Flats fishing in the Keys is big time. Go to for info and booking.

Since you got this far …

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through Patreon or Ko-fi. Both offer PayPal payments.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
