I was bored today and tied a shrimp pattern that is in one of my fly tying texts by Klausmeyer, Tying Contemporary Saltwater Flies. You can find step by step beginning in Chapter 5. I have made some subtle changes. When the water is clear, I like tan and chartruse.

Bart

Recipe below:

Hook: Mustad 34007 #2
Thread: Chartruse
Antennae: Sili Legs (pumpkin with green flecks)
Eyes: Burnt Mono (40#)
Face parts: several strands of Chartruse flash doubled over and clipped
Weight: 5 to 7 turns of 0.25 lead wire on the shank of the hook near the hook eye under the dubbing
Body: Dubbed combination of light brown rabbit, Antron Tan and Antron Brown
Shell Back: Wapsi Thin Skin-light tan with black dots
Rib: Clear Vinyl

Thanks for the feedback guys.....I got some more feedback, see pic below.

After fishing the fly, I might tie another with Moose Mane for the antenna instead of the sili legs; the sili legs kept getting fouled.
