Technical: the best way to describe the SA Merkin. A technical tie for technical fishing. Fortunately, technical and permit fishing go hand in hand. Flies that truly change the way we fish are rare and Dave Skok’s Strong Arm Merkin is one of them. If you’re permit fishing in the Keys, you need the SA Merkin in your box. Tied to Dave’s recipe. Available in White or Brown on a #2 with XS eyes and a single post mono weedguard.
