Enrico Puglisi Sand Crab Tan #1/0


When it comes to crab patterns I go overboard, maybe because I haven't found the perfect one or maybe simply because there are so many different crabs to imitate. Each year I introduce new ones or improve the existing ones. I've had excellent feedback from any area where Permits were present, as well as Bonefish and Redfish. Many of us on the east coast have a lot of fun with Stripers when we target them in the flats. Descendent Crab, Red’s Critters, Tarpon Crab and Turneffe Micro Crab are the latest additions to the crab family of EP Flies. If you look at them carefully, you will notice that these crabs have characteristics that may easily interest others species as well. A personal note about the Turneffe Micro Crab - it works like a charm! I was at Turneffe Flats Lodge this past spring and all the colors worked very well on Bonefish. Retrieve the fly slowly just so it moves and they will snap up the Micro Crab in a heartbeat! -Enrico Puglisi

Our View
Undeniably one of the most productive crab patterns. With a slow retrieve, this fly will pick up many fish without a doubt!
