I had always seen crab flies for redfish, so I got after it. I haven't been able to find some of the yarns or the right/the colors I want EP fibers, so I used some ice fur I had on hand together with some emerger yarn. Seemed to produce the same effect. Crabs, at least for me are not a quick tie. Also tied a few Kwan/Texas Toad style flies. Colors were ginger and dark brown on toads and crabs are olive with some baitfish blue EP fiber highlight. Weighted the crabs with small nickel/black dazzle eyes and the toads with large bead chain. Tomorrow will probably be a mono eye making day went through what I had done up.
I guess I was wondering if anyone else tied and fished the patterns I tied up today. The toad style flies seemed popular for the Texas coast from what I have seen. Crab flies seemed to be more popular towards Florida, but I was bored so tried something new. I guess I better figure out the Tappatalk thing so I can start getting some pictures up.
