A fly that you can count on whether you’re chasing picky permit in the Florida Keys or sight fishing to striped bass on an ebbing tide in New England, Cathys Fleeing Crab Fly is an important addition to any saltwater fly box. Cathys Fleeing Crab Fly was originally tied by Cathy Beck as a saltwater crab imitation that moves well and looks like a crab that’s making a clean escape, and with a construction of marabou, rubber legs, EP Fiber, and heavy dumbbell eyes, it does a fine job at meeting its goal.
A solid choice anywhere crabs are present, Cathys Fleeing Crab is a great pattern when fishing flats, tidal estuaries, open beaches, and river mouths. This is a fly that you can count on anytime crabs are present, so from late spring through fall in the northeast and all year long in warmer to more tropical environments. An easy fly to fish, Cathys Fleeing Crab should be stripped back to you with the occasional pause. A fly that will help you hook any bottom-dweller around, this is a crab fly that you don’t want to leave out of your arsenal.
