Qs red pelagic crabs…

Sat down last night and knocked out a few simple Q red pelagic crab flies for some offshore fly fishing. These crabs are everywhere right now and make up a large source of protein for many pelagic species.
These are really easy to tie, you just need to prepare your materials ahead of time.
What I mean is the fly is very easy to assemble once you have the proper materials. For instance, my buddy Denny powder-coated some Flymen Flyfishing Sculpin Heads (small) for me, I pre-made, hand cut my claws with clear silicone/red ep fibers and had some EP shrimp eyes, or you can make your own? I am using a 3/0 “secret” hook that I am field testing, but any good hook will work providing you can get the sculpin head to fit the diameter of the shaft. The rest of the materials are red wool, barred orange/black sili-legs and orange krystal flash for (antenna). It’s a realistic yet simple fly that gets the job done…hope you like?

“It is a post like this that truly makes me smile, way to go Larry, what a magnificent redfish, a fish of a lifetime!”

Just a quick note and “thank you” for the info, teaching and coaching.  The tips I have picked up on your site and  in person at LBCC has helped me advance pretty fast in the game.  I am hooked “OndaFly” and got into the game four years ago. I love the salt.  Here is a pic from last Friday in Venice Louisiana in 2 feet of water on the Gulf.
