Title: Shrimp pattern
Post by: Mike Livingstone on September 30, 2006, 20:09:01 PM
Just had a good day (for me) on the Don with a shrimp pattern I tied.  Not revolutionary but I thought I would share it

Hook: #12 Kamasan B175
Weight: Lead wire wrapped on middle half of shank
Tail:  6-8 partridge feather fibres
Body: Hare's ear
Rib: Copper wire
Shellback: Yellow nymph skin
Legs: Partidge feather tied in at back and pulled forward over the top of the hook below the shellback then clipped level with the hook point
Feelers: Same as tail

I will try and get some pictures if anyone wants to see it!
