Cathy's Fleeing Crab is a perfect fly to throw in any location that has the target species. This pattern has been catching fish for years and years.
Besides being a well know fly for the elusive Permit, it is a great fly to throw at Bonefish Tarpon and even Redfish.
The weighted eyes allow this fly to travel upside down like you want and has a weed guard it allows the angler to move the fly when the permit is around and not worry about snagging the bottom. If you are not a weed guard angler, just clip it off.
This fly has some great fish-ability but it also looks like a delectable multicolored native crab for the pickiest of Permit.
The hook is extremely durable and stands up to the Saltwater well. Remember to rinse all your flies well after fishing in saltwater.

More on The Mustad Signature Hooks:
The 2X extra heavy wire Saltwater Streamer hook is a classic O’ Shaughnessy style hook, suitable for a wide range of bonefish flies such as Crazy Charlie’s, Clousers, Redfish and Permit patterns, but also for traditional fish imitation patterns using Mylar tubing. The straight eye gives the fly a more natural swimming action when stripped in. The Mustad Signature fly hooks feature unique sharpness and strength. The hook features a 1X extra long shank and Duratin finish for maximal corrosion resistance. Developed in cooperation with the world´s top fly tiers to exact proportions between, gap, bend, wire diameter and shank length for precise scaling unmatched by others. Micro barb can easily be pinched down without damaging the hook for barbless applications. Chemically sharpened, Nor-Tempered high carbon steel.
