Qs “Holy Moley” sand crab…

I will try to do step by step, got a lot going on this summer, LOL The Holy Moley is a pretty easy pattern to tie, that’s why i like it so much. The original way I tied it is using a Gamakatsu SL11-3H or Diaichi 200R hook. I am trying these new 60 degree jig hooks from Umpqua, they are super sticky. Still need to field test them, so stay with the longer shank Gamas for now, I know they work.  I don’t like to fish complicated flies. It tracks well and sits up high in the sand allowing the Corbina to track it easily. It is narrower and taller than the standard “Surfin Merkin” which is in my opinion one of the best Corbina patterns originated by my buddy Paul Cronin. All the Ep fibers are stacked on top of the shank like a Joe Brooks, high tie. I like to strip this fly fairly quickly with no pauses.  I have had had some epic outings this year with the Holy Moley,  I hope you give them a try and send me some pics of your Corbina with Holy Moleys stuck to their faces…
