Crabbie Chan

One of the most popular classics saltwater-patterns is Del Brown's Merkin Crab - an easy-to-tie and super- allround crab-pattern for saltwater species. Crab-patterns are an important type of flies to have in the box when searching the flats for bonefish, permits and other predators - but crab-patterns are also effective in cold water so give it a try on your local waters. In this video we have put Mathias "Krølle" ibsen behind the vice demonstrating his version of Merkin Crab called Crabbie Chan.

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.
