Simple Redfish Crab Fly Pattern

If you listened to the most recent podcast (Charleston) you know I got into a redfish recently. I was fairly unprepared for this trip as I'd never targeted redfish. I wanted to tie a fly that would bring fish to hand. I did some minimal research and found a simple crab pattern from the Itinerant Angler forum. I'd post a picture from there but you have to be a member of the forum to see images.

  • Medium dumbell eye
  • Diamond braid (rootbeer, pink, etc)
  • Size 4 saltwater hook
  • Mason hard mono 20lb for weed guard (not in video)
