A few weeks ago, a customer of mine sent me a picture of a shrimp that he wanted me to tie for him. I had never seen this style shrimp before but gave it a go. After tying one, I realized just how nice this design was. The dubbed body gave a sorta transparent look, and the rest of the fly mimicked a shrimp perfectly! Absolutely one of the nicest shrimp patterns I have ever tied. I really like it. To be honest I cannot find this fly anywhere, so I cannot tell you exactly what it is called. So I am calling my version the Dubbed body shrimp. If any of you know the fly, and the name. Please tell me. Thank you!
Here is a list of materials used on the fly.
