    I have only recently started tying S/W Flies and your Crab Is the best I have seen and I've looked at tons of them trying to decide which to tie. Guess your Crab will be it. I Like It!!

    Hmm thanks Jax but search the Saltwater threads for Crabs tied by MCC. Wayy more suited for S/W than F/W.

    I finally received the tan foam I was talking about so here is the two tone version. I used grey squirrel for the pinchers, yellows legs (I left the "thigh" part yellow) colored with a brown marker, the underbody is kept light and I added a hot orange thread head.
