    I thought I would share this shrimp pattern.

    That is a good looking shrimp.

    That's really great. I've hauled a lot of shrimp out of Hood Canal over the years, and that's a pretty good likeness. :)

    Any details on the pattern or a tying tutorial?

    That's where I got the idea!

    Let me try this:

    Antenna: Orange flashabou
    Eyes: Black mono
    Head Bottom Area: Spirit River Brite Blend Polar Orange dubbing
    Upper Head: Orange Polymarabou with Orange dyed Guinea strips over top of that.
    Body: Spirit River Brite Blend polar Orange dubbing
    Abdominal Segments: Pearlescent wing material over Swiss Straw Orange, then wrapped with 4-5 turns of copper wire for segments.
    Legs: Orange hackle

    What size of hook? Looks like a TMC 200R in 4 or 6 ?

    That was actually Daiichi #1270 in size 4, but I think size 6 in TMC 200R would be similar in size.
