When we first started talking with Jim Klug of Yellow Dog Fly Fishing Adventures about custom tying flies for their clients he had to have us do they Yellow Dog Crab. They have developed this pattern specifically for the Belize permit fisheries. Permit there eat crabs like they do everywhere but the crabs tend to be quite small.
There are times when the wind drops, the flats slick out and the permit are in very shallow water tailing nervously on crabs. Most crabs flies land with too much noise sending permit burning off the flats. The Yellow Dog Crab is designed to land softly, match the colors of the native crabs and fool the wiliest Central American permit.
