Tying The Flexo Crab Fly For Saltwater Flats

Captain Gibson of Fly Fish Rockport is back again, this time showing you how he ties the Flexo Crab fly. This pattern has become increasingly popular with flats fisherman. Whether it be for Sheepshead or Redfish on the flats of Texas, or Permit on the flats of Key West, this fly is ideal.

This is a fairly easy pattern to tie, although can be a little tricky on the first attempt. We love to tie this fly in white, then easily customize for your fishing environment with permanent marker. Clearly a must have crab pattern for the fly box.
