Stuart said:Some of those shrimp are pretty cool. I have watched your youtube video and that one is cool as well, but I don't think I would have enough patience or even know-how to do that one just yet. I can't help but think these shrimp patterns could be deadly, especially with a little scent spray on them.
twitch-twitch-reel said:was the video easy to follow? I tried to keep the camera angle simple. it is hard to tie with a cammera between you and the fly.
I really enjoy tying flies. it is a nice way to unwind from work.
Do you tie your own flies?
cheetah said:The epoxy shrimp looks awsome last year I was watching reds rooting up the water and found they were eating these tiny white shrimp, I think a weed guard would help out. lets see that fly when your finished with it. I have not had much time at the table this year but winter approaches and I will be sitting in front of the tyers table again.

If you tied it in a larger size, maybe a size 4 long or 2 standard, you might be able to incorporate a small glass rattle to the shank and then epoxy over. I can attest that a little noise can really turn those reds heads and get them looking around - which is sometimes crucial when they have their heads in the grass and are oblivious to flies being quietly dragged above them..... Just an idea.
