November Fly Salon - Prawn/Shrimp Patterns

#50
Oh, CBS’s. You must be fishing in southern Sweden and on the Morrum! I’ve fished there too! A beautiful stream that reminded me of the North Umpqua. Do you get some good ones?!
I live in southern Finland on the coast, can't fish the spawn anymore on my local river. But used to get some real good ones, bought a week license last december but was blown out chocolate Milk! Try again 1st december this year!

Northwest Fly Patterns & Tying Guide... Rainland Fly Casters [2003]
Northwest Fly Fishing - Trout and Beyond... John Shewey [1992]

Sea Run Cutthroat Trout... Richard K. Stoll [2017]

Is there a book I may have missed?

Top fly looks to be "South Sound Euphausiid", a pattern originated by Vern Jeremica (page 133 - Fly Fishing for Pacific Salmon II)

The bottom fly has hints of the FJ Pink, Pink Eve, or Handlebar Fly, who knows, looks fishy so what the heck!

Books I looked in:

Fly Fishing for Pacific Salmon II - Les Johnson, Bruce Ferguson
Fly Fishing for Coastal Cutthroat Trout - Les Johnson
Fly Patterns of British Columbia - Arthur Lingren

I enjoy seeing all the types of shrimp and prawn patterns that everyone has shared. So many styles, profiles and colors. This will be a difficult decision and there are still a couple of weeks left. Thanks to all that have submitted so far and I look forward to seeing more submissions.
Here’s a Purple Practitioner tied on a size 2 McNeese.
