Default Re: Redfish Fly Patterns?

I have a whole lot of clousers ready to go in sizes 4 and 1. All in chartreuse and white.

Also tied up the fools gold crab, I will get some shots up in a bit of it. It was a little harder to tie than I was expecting since I am still very new to this.

X2....This is probably the most important thing while fishing the dark stuff...And I also like the darker colors, purple/black as they seem to show up better against the flat lit brown colored water.

Just my .02

On the Texas coast there's a fly I've seen talked about a lot called "Redfish Crack". I'm not sure if I'm supposed to add an external link here on the board so use you favorite search engine and it should pop up. I've seen a spoon fly with the same name but that's not it. Looks like this, but I've seen lots of different variations.
Matter of fact, my state kayak fishing fourm just finished a swap of them.

Seen photos of lots of big reds with this fly in it's mouth.
I have a link to a SBS I can send you.

Another productive pattern I've seen is a crab fly.
Hope that helps.
I gave tying this fly a whirl last night, everything seems pretty straight forward except how you tie in the EP fibers. Anyone have any suggestions??

Thanks

The EP fibers that we use are in a dubbing brush that Enrico sells. You just attach the brush with a few wraps, make a couple of wraps, tie the brush at the end of your wraps, brush the fibers back and you are done.
