Crab Fly

Here is a crab fly. I created it today based on input from Dick Brown's book and the fly tying segment on Spanish fly this morning. Jose Wejebe mentioned the tiers name to quickly but the concept was that using corsair tubing w/o epoxy for the body allows for a great casting fly because the air can flow through it. Tied in a size 4 I am hoping this might be a great fly if there are Permit and bones in the area. Would love to hear some feedback if improvements can be made.
