A go-to crab pattern whether you’re headed into New England for striped bass in July or the Florida Keys for bonefish in November, the EP Permit Crab Fly can hold its own wherever you take it. Coming from the Enrico Puglisi family of flies, this crab features a design of marabou, just enough accenting flash, a body of EP Fiber, rubber legs for movement, dumbbell eyes, and a weed guard so you can hit the mangroves without fear.
An excellent imitation for a variety of crab species, this is a fly that you can turn to whether you’re fishing sand or mud flats, tidal estuaries, river outflows, and even open beaches. A great choice anywhere crabs are found, the EP Permit Crab Fly should be carried from spring through fall in the northeast and anytime you’re headed into a warm or tropical situation. Let it sink to the bottom, slowly crawl it back to you with the occasional pause, and you’ll quickly see why the EP Permit Crab has been a standard on the flats for years.
