Strong Arm Merkin Tan

Dave Skok's Strong Arm Merkin Crab has become one of the top patterns for permit and other larger flats species that prey on crabs. This is also a solid Triggerfish fly. The prominent arm/claw structure really grabs the attention of gamefish that prey on crabs! The Strong Arm Crab is offered in tan or olive, weighted with lead eyes in either a lighter weight or medium weight version to match depth conditions.
