Tied these last week to enhance my flats arsenal. Been told fleas are a favorite of bonefish. All tied on size 6 Mustad hooks.

Materials are from Fly Tyers Dungeon. Some of the bodies were tied using sand Crab dubbing instead of Congo hair (EP equivalent). ImageImageImageImageImage

Nice ties! Are the eyes bead-chain? I enjoy seeing the flies and materials that are used in fisheries distant from my own. Imagine a #6 being a micro-fly!

Yes the eyes are bead chain. I add a little piece of lead wire over the shank to make sure they stay hook up underwater.

What sizes do you normally use? What fish do you target?

Roblepl:
Sorry for the slow response. I fish for atlantic salmon with #4 to 10 flies (and occasionally #2), smallmouth bass and chain pickerel with similar sizes, and trout, perch, sunnies, fallfish, etc. with #6 to #24. I guess micro, to me, means anything below #18. If I had to guess at what is the average size of fly tied on my line over a year, I'd say it would be #10.
But that's only in the context of my experience. I think its fascinating that, because of what you target and where, those little crabs are 'micro'. And of course, their weight lets you use a lighter rod, which only adds to the fun and challenge, I'm sure.
And again, nice tying job.

If I was a fish, I would have already gobbled those down.
