Hooks with a rounded curve to them make excellent shrimp hooks. The problem is there that there are very few saltwater hooks of this type available; wide gap, arching type hooks are common for freshwater scud and shrimp patterns, however. One excellent hook made specifically for saltwater shrimp patterns is the Partridge CS-54 although finding them can be difficult sometimes. Without having to search for a special Shrimp hook, another solution is to tie a "bend down" type pattern. I tied the fly pictured above on a #8 Mustad 34007 with the forward portion of the shank bent down about 10 degrees. It creates a reasonably rounded topside curve without compromising hooking ability. Gamakatsu SC15 hooks might be another hook to consider for this type of pattern. - Super Hair: A small bunch of Super Hair is laid across the top of the fly and anchored with tying thread behind the eye. Then the 6# Monofilament fishing line is wound forward from the hook bend to the eye forming the segmented abdomen. That small bunch of Super Hair forms the Maxillapeds (mouthparts) at the bend, Carapace base (back)along the body and Uropods (tail) at the eye of the hook. Color used on this fly was Peach; other good choices for the Sound include Shrimp and Spier.
