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?
Larry nice ! can't wait for the swap
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.
Nice tie Larry!
Gonna have to tie some of those up myself.
As always, very cool pattern, Larry.
does it work? I'm still sticking with the popcicle!
