"Alphlexo" Crab Body Tubing

Product Description
$4.99
Maximum quantity available reached.

This flexible braided tubing is used to create the mesh body of an Alphlexo ("flexo crab") style crab fly, but can also be used for other baitfish and squid patterns involving extended tube bodies. This tubing is braided in a "chinese finger trap" style which can be opened up and tied in to create the body carapace of many different types of crabs.

To create the perfect Alflexo crab, you also need a few more "ingredients". With some dumbell eyes/bead chain underneath, you can create the structure for the underbody. Then, some standard ultra chenille to make the legs and claws. Chicone's Stealth Bead chain works very well to give some natural crustacean tones and provide a shape to the underbody on these crabs. Fluorescent bead chain also works well if you want some contrast and a "hot spot". We recommend mixing it up and trying different color combos. Clear tubing looks really nice with some white bead chain underneath. Dumbbell eyes can either be plain lead, or the fluorescent painted ones. Add some Epoxy Mono Crab Eyes for lifelike eyes too!

Available in 6 colors. Packaged in lengths of ~2 feet per pack. 2 feet will make around 15-18 crabs.

  • 1/4" Diameter
