The Raghead Crab (Isley's)

Dreamcast Flies
$3.95

Jan Isley revolutionized permit fishing in the Mexican Yucatan with his easy-to-tie, imitation of the common flats crab. It's the number one pattern there!

This is another good merkin-style crab imitation that makes good use of synthetic tying materials for the body. The heavy barbell lead eyes make this a claws-up pattern when the fly is at rest, offering a great imitation of the natural. Designed to be fished in typical crab style for permit and a strip and pause style for bonefish.
