Turneffe Crab for bonefish

Creator: Craig Matthews

This is a crab pattern which is a staple in the Yucatan and Belize.

It is very small, very light and casts very well. The materials are simple but there is some careful cutting involved with the furry foam used for the body. Most commonly tied in tan and olive although some other color variations exist.  We just stay with the basics, they work!
