http://ourworld.cs.com/nwflyfisher/spotshrimp3.jpg Just wanted to share a shrimp pattern I recently started messing around with since I just wasn't happy with any of the popular "shrimp patterns" out there. Yeah, I know, it needs a few more periopods - I'm still refining the pattern. Entire fly is 2-inches long (minus the antennae, of course.) Constructive criticism welcomed. HOOK: #4 Mustad 34011 THREAD: Larva Lace Fine, clear monofilament ROSTRUM, CARAPACE and TELSON: Super Hair. Color: Shrimp PERIOPODS (Walking Legs), ABDOMEN and PLEOPODS (Swimmerettes) : Ostrich Herl. Color: Ginger ANTENNAE: Two hackle stems EYES: 30# clear monofilament, burnt & colored with black permanent marker then coated with head cement. Note: Body segmentation created by overwrapping with fine, gold wire and then coating the Super Hair with 5-minute epoxy. DON'T epoxy the Telson (tail) or you'll never get the tippet through the eye of the hook.
