Striped bass love crabs. They are an easy and plentiful meal, especially here in Maine. With the right fly and setup, a fly angler can effectively imitate this sought after food source! In similar style and tying technique to the well known Avalon Shrimp pattern, the Tactical Tungsten Crab Fly is tied with strung tungsten beads along the bottom to not only provide the proper counter weight for inverted retrieve, but also for their rattle-like sound (when stripped) which can attract fish.
