|Furry Foam Crab V2|
Every year about this time in March and April... we have some friends who go fly fish in Maldives.... and then at these moment, I will be tying some salt water patterns.. for them to try and fish in Maldives.
Revisit my Furry Foam Crab pattern which I design back in 2008..
I realize it's time to put in some improvement and to make it more durable... the natural biots legs and the pincer was easily bitten off by fishes during the fishing. and these legs and pincers are not 'mobile' enough or in another words... not enough 'LIFE' given to the pattern.
Now this new 2nd version of Furry foam crab have more mobility and the moving parts are more durable.
Hook - Gamakatsu SL12S or New O'shaughnessy size 6 or 4
Legs and Pincers - Ultra Chenille by Metz
