A simple crab imitation that shouldn’t be overlooked no matter where you’re casting, the Turneffe Crab Fly is a small imitation that hooks anything from picky permit to spooky bonefish. Designed by Craig Matthews to fool permit and bonefish on the Turneffe Flats of Belize, this fly quickly became a top-producing crab pattern all around the globe. Perfect for fishing flats and equally at home in tidal rivers, estuaries, and the first trough of the beach, the Turneffe Crab Fly is an effective fly that lands softly and has a realistic profile.
A simple design that gets the job done and offers a delicate presentation, the Turneffe Crab Fly is tied with rubber legs, a deer hair wing, and furry foam body. A construction that gives just the right amount of movement, the Turneffe Crab is a solid choice any day of the year when fishing in tropical environments. When fishing the Turneffe Crab, it’s important to strip it along the water’s bottom and incorporate the occasional pause. Carry it in small sizes like 2-6 and you’ll find that this simple crab is often all that you need.
