Fall shrimps.
« on: September 03, 01:16AM »
Cascade variant.  Purple pheasant tail for wing and burnt orange over the yellow hackle.

I'll call this one of my own in so far as I never seen one like it. Wish I had used a few sprigs of black crystal flash in the wing .

First fly since the swap and tried to form the body with deer hair. Not happy with the hackle and forgot the rib. Will play with it some til I get what I'm looking for.

This one a bit better. Used calf tail on it and a thicker( too thick) whisker. Need to find or order those boars bristols or wreck all my hackle feathers. Getting there. Not giving up til I think it's clean looking enough.

Simple GP or tippet shrimp variation. Looks like it should play well.

Might be getting a little bent on muddlers but I do like the look of this pattern.
