“Going back more than 10 years ago, I got invited by a good friend and client to Guanaja, Honduras for a weeklong DIY saltwater trip and sat down to tie some permit flies for the trip.

I had talked with a bunch of people that had been down there to fish and researched all kinds of crab photos.

With all the standard stuff I began to play around with a more imitative Reef Crab imitation. Looking for a more mixable alternative to wool, I tried using rabbit instead- which ended up working nicely. By adding in some deer hair, we got a fantastic, mottled effect.

Long story short, ended up with two DIY permit that week on that initial olive version. Over the past few years, we have had this fly do very well everywhere, Bahamas, Belize, Mexico, even made some in roads with a handful of Florida Keys guides.

When Pat Cohen came out with the laser cut claws I played around with a few and thought they looked like a great fit. After fishing with them, I am convinced they work even better.”

Dangerous Crab

Alright, folks, let me tell you about the McNights Danger Muffin Crab fly. This thing is like the Chuck Norris of flies - it's tough, it's deadly, and it's got a killer name.

First off, let's talk about the design. This fly looks like something straight out of a sci-fi movie. It's got all sorts of crazy legs and claws and stuff. I don't even know what half of it is, but I know it looks like it means business.

And let me tell you, those fish are gonna be all over this thing like a fat kid on a cupcake. They won't know what hit 'em. This fly is like a ninja assassin - it sneaks up on those fish and takes 'em out before they even know what's happening.

But here's the best part - this fly is so easy to use, even a caveman could do it. You don't need to be some fancy-pants fly fishing expert to catch fish with this thing. Just cast it out there and let the magic happen.

Now, I know some of you might be thinking, "Why do I need a fly with such a ridiculous name?" But let me tell you, it's all about the intimidation factor. Those fish are gonna see that name and know they're dealing with a serious fly fisherman. They'll be shaking in their little fish boots.

So if you're looking to catch some fish and make a statement while you're at it, the McNights Danger Muffin Crab fly is the way to go. Just don't be surprised if you start feeling like a superhero out there. And if you catch a big one, make sure to give me a shoutout.
