Gangster Crab Fly Tying Video Instructions

Gangster Crab Fly Tying InstructionsThe Gangster Crab is a great Redfish and Snook Fly.  The Gangster Crab is a blend between a Kwan and a EP style crab.  The Gangster Crab can be tied with heavy lead eyes or lighter beadchain eyes, depending on the depth of the water.  The Gangster Crab does not only work on Redfish and Snook, it is also a great on Bonefish, Tarpon, Permit, as well as a all purpose saltwater fly.  I prefer to tie the Gangster Crab with green eyes, but you can purchase pre-made Crab Shrimp Eyes to save time.  Give one a try!
