EP Micro Crab

EP Micro Crab Fly Tying Video Instructions

The EP Micro Crab is a perfect small crab pattern for bonefish, redfish and permit developed by Enrico Puglisi.  The EP Micro Crab was designed to fool spooky fish in shallow water.  The light weight beadchain eyes allows for the fly to land softly in skinny water.  The EP Micro Crab can be tied in several color variations.  Tan, Olive and Rootbeer are the most popular color patterns, but Gray and Purple have also been known to catch fish!  Have fun and take your time with this fly.  Once tied and glued, the EP Micro Crab is super durable and will catch a ton of fish!!
