Tying The Merkin
Now that a cold front is here it's time to catch up on some fly tying. The classic Merkin Crab is one of my favorite patterns, especially for redfish. It can be a pain to assemble at first but I've been using it for so long that I can tie one in less than two minutes. They actually get easy after your first half dozen.
