This is an update on our original EP® CRAB BODY – similar in style to the EP® PERMIT CRAB BODY but without the ridges.
Made of an incredibly soft and light synthetic material so your fly lands gently on the water for those delicate presentations, as we all know how easily spooked permit and bonefish can be. Floating version is made of 2mm foam.
They are super easy to work with; just use a touch of glue or tie in with some thread to attach to the hook. You can also can give your fly a mottling color effect using MAGIC MARKER as they are very pen marker friendly.
SMALL CRAB BODY – Hook Size #2, #4*
MEDIUM CRAB BODY – Hook Size: #1, #1/0*
*Please note: the above hook size recommendations are just guidelines based on how we use these crab bodies in our tying. Hook size can vary by brand (we use Gamakatsu), and so we encourage you to experiment and find the right combination for your tying.
