Raghead Crab bonefish and permit fly

Creator: unknown

The raghead crab is a variation of the Merkin Crab used for permit. It utilizes Marabou for the head and sometimes includes the hackle palmered just in front of the body section. It can be tied in almost any color but natural colors likes brown and olives work best.  It is primarily a permit fly but can also be used for bonefish.
