    Default Sexy Crab

    Seeing that we are all on the crab patterns, this is a lovely pattern I found on Globalflyfisher.

    As a lot of guys are into the dubbing brush methods etc, this fly uses it.
    Fishient have some very good premade dubbing brushes, as well.

    This crab is very easy to tie and does not take along time to tie as well.

    You could leave out the dumbbell eyes and fish it with a sinking line and short leader, on the bottom so that it will be almost a floating, swimming crab pattern.
