These are the genuine Alphlexo Crabs that are produced in South Africa for our friends at Alphonse Fishing Co., who developed and perfected the fly for their guide and lodge operations in The Seychelles. The unique body design of the Alphexo Crab is achieved by tying them with Body Tubing.

Tungsten weights in the flies allow you to achieve different sink rates for different fishing situations. For example, in really shallow water on the flats a light Alphlexo Crab would be ideal as it sinks slower and is quieter when it hits the water. Conversely, a heavy Alphlexo Crab is ideal for deeper water where the fly needs to get down quicker, for example, when redfish fishing.
All the Alphlexo Crabs come with a weed guard as standard. You have the option to cut it off if you are fishing in a weedless area.
Most of the colors come with plain-colored legs. This allows you to easily "customize" your crab by adding bars or color to the legs with a permanent marker pen in order to "match your local crab hatch" if you would like.
