Merkins Crabs

Here is another video from Captain Matt Thomas. He does a great job with the videos and so I’m sharing another one. This one is a Merkin style crab pattern, essential for any trip to the flats. The pattern is a bit time consuming, but easy enough to tie. The video is easy to follow. Change up the colors of the legs and the body material to give yourself a decent selection of flies. Olives, browns, tans and duns are good choices for the body. Matt uses the EP fibers here, but you could also use X-Stream hair, Z-lon or Congo hair.
