The Nano Crab is a tiny crab that's designed by Dave McKenna to sneak up on the pickiest bonefish and permit. After receiving a pack of Semper Fli's new Guard Hair Chenille and matching micro chenille, Dave set out to make a better finesse crab. This fly lands like an Olympic diver but gets into the zone quick, without spooking tailing fish.
To keep this fly top-shelf quality, we use all Semper Fli Nano Silk Thread, UV Straggle Chenille, Guard Hair Chenille and Micro Chenille for matching claws. Nano Crab's are tied on short-shank, big game hooks to ensure solid hook sets into the hardest crushers.
