Another mini crab.

They're becoming a little more refined. I thought I'd try some using bright orange, which is a trigger for many bream. This one was tied on a Gamakatsu Bonefish hook size 8. The carapace is made from cut down Velcro and then coloured with permanent marker pens. The legs were made of my new micro chenille that I have just received.

This one has an extra small dumbbell weight that does its job to ensure the fly hits the bottom the right way up. I plan to make up some more with heavier weights for use in deeper water, or water with a current.

I'm looking forward to trying them out in east Gippy some time soon.

They look sick mate. A lot of detail and realism. Looking forward to hearing about how they go.

I use UV glue almost exclusively. It's very hard to beat. There's no waiting and you can get it just right before hitting it with the UV light to cure it. It's quick and easy. You can get it in thin and runny or thick and viscous. It's not real cheap though, unfortunately at $28 for 15ml.

Have you had a look around the interwebs for any cheap alternatives? I know that there are UV cure gel coat nail polishes that set rock hard and might be able to do the same job. You will most certainly be able to find it on the bay for spare change.
