Tyr's shrimp imitation
Here's one shrimp imitation i often used in sea trout fishing (something to share with you fellows)
¤Hook: Scierre hook size. 12
¤Thread: White lagartun xx strong
¤Tail: Mylar tube (5cm) size small - Perl
¤Eyes : Mono 0.60 burned
¤Body : Ice dubbing
¤Antena : Polar bear (white )
Step by step
1).Tie Mono to the hook.
2).Cut a 20cm lagatun xxstrong and used it as a curving line inside the mylar tubes, tie it at around 1cm from the end and do it as you can see in the picture . (dont forget to remove the cotton like thread inside the mylar tubes for more balance on the fly, in that case the fly wont swim up side down)
3).Wax the thread and use som ice dubbing : it depends on desired color,(dark water- pink will do the trick, watch for the time of the year where shrimps spawn, in that case orange, pink and red sometimes pulls the triger.
4).Tie at around 2-4 polar bear fibers
5).And then the get ready for the ice dubbing for the head
6).Thread in the mylar tubes at around the middle
7). Then pull the mylar tubes over the dubbing
8).Pull the thread a little bit so you can form the shrimp like strukture.
9).Brush the rest of the mylar tubes and the dubbing
10). Fix the mylar tubes on both sides. for even distribution
11). Tyrone's Shrimp imitation
As what I've stated before, Watch for the shrimp spawning period, here's the twist..... a little pinch of kaviar on the mylar tubes actually trigers and a big chance of hooking what ever fish around the area you're fishin'
