EP Mole Crab

EP Mole Crab Fly Tying Video Instructions

The EP Mole Crab was developed by Enrico Puglisi for big Bonefish, Redfish and Permit.  The Mole Crab can be tied in many colors, with the best colors being Tan and Sand.  The Mole Crab imitates a small round crab called….you guessed it….a Mole Crab.  The Mole Crab doesn’t really look like a crab.  It actually looks more like a sand flea or a “sand crab”.  These crabs burrow and scurry about in sandy areas near shallow water.  They are a favorite forage for big Redfish and Bonefish cruising in the surf!!
