The EP Fleeing Crab is a “fleeing” crab imitation developed by Enrico Puglisi.  The EP Fleeing Crab imiates a crab in motion as it is moving away from predators.  The EP Fleeing Crab is the perfect bonefish crab pattern, but it also works well on Redfish and Permit.  The EP Fleeing Crab can be tied in 3 main colors: Sand, Tan and Olive.  The Fleeing Crab can also be tied in 2 sizes, a Size #01 and #02.   A really fun and easy realistic crab pattern!!
