First Shrimp & Looking for help

Recommended Posts

I have been told by a guy that in Florida the crappie will take a grass shrimp over a minnow or anything else. So I am working on this shrimp and can do it in several colors so tell me what you think. It's on a #6 hook so bream and crappie should love this little 1 1/4" long treat.

 

Anyway does anyone have any ideas of what I can do to add to the head to be more like a shrimp?

looks good!! i think i would small rear the end and bigger by the legs also a scud hook size 10 or smaller works better. and cut left over foam.. this is a shrimp light fly with deer hair instead of foam but would use foam looks better

I went for the curved hook instead of the bent scud hooks and you may well be right that it would be better on a scud hook.

 

Thanks,

Skip,

I'm with Jon, smaller may be better, but check the naturals in the area you fish, go with the size and color to match them. I tie most of my scuds on a Tiemco 2487 scud hook.

Good luck and keep us informed on how you do.
