The Reach-Around Crab is a universal crab pattern developed for remote Indian Ocean destinations like Farquhar and St Brandon's where crab patterns are essential to target a variety of species.
The hook will aways ride up in this fly limiting hookups or snagging over broken coral bottom. The fly itself is an all-round pattern and have caught Trigger fish, Permit, Bonefish, Parrotfish and a host of Travelly species. This is most of our guides go to fly when they are not 100% sure of what species they might encounter.
