    This is the original irish Shrimp Pattern developed by Pat Curry of Coleraine. From this pattern evolved the rest of the fabulous shrimps we all know and love. This style of fly with tyhe bushy reat end tracks well in the water and the materials move like crazy which make them perfect for Steelhead even though they were created for Atlantics. Try one and see...

    HOOK – Double or Single, Spey length or Waddington Shank w/trailer
    TAG - Fine Silver Oval
    TAIL – Golden Pheasant Rump, wound as hackle
    REAR BODY – Red Floss
    Rib – Fine Silver Oval
    Veiling – Red Swan or Crest or hackle Points on the sides
    MID HACKLE – White Tipped Badger
    FRONT BODY – Ronn Lucas Iridescent Dubbing, Black
    Rib – Fine Silver Oval
    Veiling – Red Swan or Crest or hackle Points on the sides
    WINGS – Jungle Cock
