    Bourbon Prawn step-by-step

    Here are a couple variants that I tied very quickly (for me) to test whether this was something I wanted to add to my 'fishing fly' arsenal. The answer is 'yes' as other than the jungle cock and BEP (which could both be substituted), it uses fairly inexpensive materials and I can tie one in about 15min.

    Great looking bug.
    That rear wing really bulks up the profile.
