Fly Tying Video Library

Merkin Crab permit and bonefish fly

Creator: Del Brown

What we can say about the classic version is it works! This is a crab imitation which is tied in many different colors. The original was tan & brown body, Tan hackle & white legs with red tips, small amount of flash. This version uses stacked synthetic fibers instead of yarn.
