    Is your buddy a ginger? Because that would make a lot more sense for a shrimp pattern......

    Very weird indeed. Aren't there materials that can substitute for the 'hair'.

    Methinks that jungle cock would be most appropriate in this pattern. I looked for some old patterns that I tied using Green Wing Macaw feathers, but I have neither those nor the bird to create more.

    Alright, this was a tough decision, but I'm going to give the win to JohnK, for his Blood of Babybel. It's simple, sexy, looks fishy, and I've ne'er seen babybel at a fly shop. Please give him a round of internet applause and shower him with praise.

    Honorable mention goes to sopflyfisher for his Pubic Prawn. Had it been a pubic crab pattern, it may have taken the win.

    Thanks for playing, everyone, JohnK, you're up!

    JohnK, will you be posting a new salon topic? If not I'll give it to sopflyfisher; we gotta get this rolling.
