Tying The Avalon Crab Fly




My recent trip to Key West confirmed that the Avalon Crab is the best new flats pattern to come along in the last decade.  The bonefish jumped all over it and I even hooked a five foot lemon shark on one.  It's a complicated looking fly but relatively easy to tie.  Here are a couple of pages with how-to instructions for this pattern, one video and one step-by-step still photos.
