    Similar to a squamish Poacher/Lester the lobster.
    I usually tie them on #7 AJ hooks and down to #10 Mustad streamer hooks. Deadly on the Salters and fresh run Atlantic Salmon here on Canada's East Coast

    General Practitioners tied in the original classic style; Ally's Shrimps; and a few Irish Shrimp style flies. A very good friend from Northern California likes Squamish Poachers I tie for him with Estaz body and Edge Brite for the carapace.

    Shrimp?
    Scud or Shrimp?
    Fresh water or salt?
    When thought shrimp, they're the all in the same family...
    Werner's (freshi) or General Practitioners (salti)? two of the best... :thumb:

    I don't think scuds are in the same family as shrimp. Scuds are related to sand fleas so that makes them an insect. Shrimp are not insects.
