EP Mole Crab Video Fly Tying Instructions

The EP Mole Crab was developed by Enrico Puglisi for big Bonefish, Redfish & Permit. It can be tied in many colors, but the best colors are Tan & Sand.  The Mole Crab imitates a small round crab called….you guessed it….a Mole Crab.  It doesn’t really look like a crab.  It actually looks more like a sand flea or a “sand crab”.  These crabs burrow and scurry about in sandy areas near shallow water.  They are a favorite forage for big Redfish & Bonefish cruising in the surf!!
