Lou,Looks like I need more yellow flies in my box, as a matter of fact I don't think I have any...
Ooh, I like that! It's like a cool cartoon creature! As with a baitfish pattern I've been tying, I copied my shrimpy fly (with some changes, incl. swapping snowshoe in for the craft fur) from a fly I bought from Ben at Pacific Flyfishers. He's super helpful! I'm waiting for my floating line to get here and haven't fished the shrimp yet, but Ben advised floating line without much stripping or movement and letting it follow/flow with the current with enough tension to feel the take. I'd love to learn more about how to fish these leetle bugs from folks here who know! ~ZakWith all this talk of yellow from @Stonefish and the shrimpy fly posted by @Zak, it got me thinking. I rarely tie in yellow and I don’t fish shrimp patterns often - mainly because I find them tough to fish. Do I dead drift them? Strip? Twitch? Anyway, wanted something I could fish more like a streamer and came up with this. Promising - first one so I need to tinker but I think it could work...

I tie these in pink, orange and olive for surf perch. Orange with olive tail just kills themI got out today & had fun! Need more in this colour! This is a very old Finnish fly for coastal seatrout called Mulkkis, no translation found, but it kind of means Asshole!

It also helps you to collect 20 years worth of crap, that you could never possibly tie enough flys in a lifetime with
I never did that, but I did attach the remote to a chunk of 4x4 when the Kids were younger. It was never lost again . . .Some people wrap their TV remotes in saran wrap
