EFFECTIVE CRAB





Hook: standard or 2x long saltwater in sz 4 - 1/0
Thread: Brown 3/0
Weight: lead wire
Legs: black rubber
Eyes: burnt mono
Body: belly and carapace: furry foam cut to shape and glued on, belly should be slightly smaller and more rounded then the top

I chose this pattern because it is such a quick and easy tie and that is often what is required with saltwater flies, as many can be lost in a day of hard fishing. i can tie these guys at about 2 doz an hour.
