if im fishing a flattie match i use small crabs plaice and all other flatties love them look under the rocks and seaweed put them in a bucket you want the crabs live and if you hook them it will kill them so i get a small crab rub its back on a towel then put a small dab of superglue on its back then stick it to the back of your hook the crab moving will get the attention of the fish if you dont get a fish just rub a knife along the hook and remove the glue and crab it is better then worm

That's an interesting tip Roy. Presumably they don't ever fly off during the cast (?) Most people seem to chop their crab up and wrap it onto the hook. Never used crab myself but that looks a nice clean way to do it, and you don't have to worry about peelers.

Once caught a 2lb bass on fly and it was full of 50p-size crabs.

If people want loads of crabs in the portsmouth area then try near the concrete block on the eastern road. Where the wall is there are loads running about in the cracks ;) . Good place to get peeler crab also for the hounds :D
