Bauer Crab

Will Bauers crab pattern is a great permit fly that works all over the Caribbean. It's a style that lends itself well to size, weight and colour adjustments, making it a good option for other species such as golden trevally, large bones and triggerfish.

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.
