Shrimp

Recommended Posts

I'll try and get out this week. even if it's on foot. If it sinks pretty fast do you think it needs a weed guard? The hook I used was a Mustad 3407DT size 4. Don't know if there's a better hook I should've used. If so let me know.

You still have room to tie a weed guard, but I would think it will get nailed on the drop. Great looking fly! I use Loon UV for quick bodies and for sealing wraps. How long does Clear Goo need to set?

The Loon UV is like three seconds after hitting it with the UV light.

Clear Cure Goo is the same but uses a different spectrum of UV light. The Loon light doesn't work on the CC Goo and the CCG light doesn't work on the Loon goo. I was thinking about making the shrimp a bit bigger. What type of weed guard do you prefer to tie?

You might be able to tie a V in at the eye at this point. I like to tie in a piece of 15-20# mono at the bend and loop it to the eye to form a guard.

I noticed in the close-up that the hook has been compressed in a couple places. Be careful how much pressure you exert with the vise so the hook isn't damaged. It can happen easier than you might expect. Just my $.02

Thanks for all compliments. Here's a variety of colors I tied a few weeks ago. Just picked up some large rattles this week and we'll see how they work with the shrimp. Thanks guys.

When I export my photos to the net form my PC, I automate the watermark on them. The watermark is done via my Mac.

I am using Cameraplus to edit my photos on iphone.
