Your choice of weight of eyes but I prefer steel or lead eyes. I have found that bead chain or mono eyes don’t fish very well with this fly. This fly was inspired by whitlock’s crayfish pattern.
A few far away flats shrimp and a local ghost shrimp inspired by @Nick Clayton
I tied the ghost shrimp with one claw (pine squirrel) since they have 1 dominant claw, just for kicks. This one has a tungsten bead in the middle, it's a lefty.
Ill never forget the day early in my fly fishing career, (far enough along that i thought i knew it all) when i found out how rough a day can be when you need these flies. Fish jumping over the corner of my boat literally to eat dragon flies/damsels out of the air and i got skunked all day... for 3 days... never leave home without a couple in the back of the box now
Good tip.I tied some of these using a Shane Stalcup recipe but in his video used damsel blue furry foam for the thorax which I have been unable to locate anywhere.Has anyone see this material or know where to find it?
