I've been trying to come up with a fly that I could use to mimic a green crab and use some Tuffleye Flex to give it a hard shell appearance. So far I have tried spinning EP fibers in a dubbing loop this gives me a nice body but Iím not happy with using rubber legs for the legs. Anyone have any other ideas on what other material to use?
Hi all! This is my first post. I've had an enjoyable time reading many posts. I know this may sound redundant, but what about the old stand-bys? Specifically the Merkins. Unless your resident fish have been thoroughly educated to this fly, give it a shot. This fly has stood the test of time and is often found in fly boxes from Maine to Florida. I have caught bass in Monomony, Weaks in NJ, and Pompano in tampa Bay with a Merkin...simple yet effective. Just my $0.02. Great to be here!

That's why the merkin is still so popular despite all the other patterns that have come on the scene since it was first developed...
