EP Crab Fly

Tying Video Instructions (Brush Technique) - Enrico Puglisi Fly Pattern
The EP Crab is one of the best crab imitations for Permit, Bonefish and Redfish. The EP Crab is the updated version to the classic Merkin's Crab. The EP Crab uses the durable EP Fibers for the body and has more life like legs and tail. The EP Crab can be tied in so many variations, colors and sizes. Most of the EP Crabs have the color Tan incorporated into them, but other colors can be used to tie Blue Crab and Sand Crab imitations. In this video, we will tie the EP with a Crustaceous Brush. This is a fast and efficient way to tie EP Crabs. The EP Crab is a must have in the salt, so get to work!!!

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.
