Fancy Raghead Crab - Mottled Brown, Rear Facing CB057

Fancy Raghead Crab - Mottled Brown, Rear Facing CB057

 I call this the "Fancy" Raghead. It uses EP eyes and claws. This is an extremely time consuming fly to tie, and uses expensive components, hence the higher price.

To make this fly, you tie a yarn crab. Cut whatever color yarn combination (over a piece of paper) you wish into tiny, tiny pieces so it like dust. Coat the top of the fly with Flexement and sprinkle yarn dust on wet cement. Use your thumbs to press the yarn dust into the flexement. Trim when it dries. 

I can tie this crab in just about any color you want. By mixing different colors of "yarn dust" one can achieve a nice variety of mottled colored crabs. Olive and tan works very well for permit in the Caribbean.
