  1. Poorly Tied

    Jim Porter (verified owner)

    The crab body will rotate on the hook shank making the fly ineffective.

      Really? That response is insulting and incorrect. Fly tyers know that there are problems with dumbbell eyes twisting if not properly tied on. I stand by my original review.

      Jim, just checked the rest of the flies in stock and don’t have any with this issue. Please send yours back for a refund and so we can check them out!

      Hi Jim, we’re sorry you had that experience. If you grip the fly and twist hard, any fly will break loose. Normally there isn’t a lot of lateral torque (unless induced by hand). Normal casting and use will not twist the fly on the hook.
