Crimp - Tan - Size 4
It's a "marriage made in heaven". That is how simply juicy looking is Doug's effort to cobble together one fly that is both Crab and Shrimp, more specifically a mantis shrimp. This is a go getter for its intended quarry of
bonefish, redfish and permit. Doug assures us, if it eats shrimp or crabs, the fish will eat this fly. Crabs garner most of the press for taking permit, but many know firsthand that permit love to eat pugnacious mantis shrimp as well, and will take them on the strip. Increasingly, Yucatan permit have been getting hooked on mantis shrimp patterns.
