Fly Tying

Recommended Posts

Brown shrimp are one of the most common foods for many of the fish species in the Gulf of Mexico. From Redfish, to Speckled trout, to Permit and even flounder. All of these species eat brown shrimp and eat a lot of them. This has to be one of the most common baits to mimic when tying flies or buying lures. So you bet I am tying up a few brown trout patterns for my trip to Corpus Christy in October.

This pattern closely mimics a brown trout, and also swims hook point up. It will sink to the bottom quickly due to the dumbbell eyes, and has lots of movement due to the rubber legs. Pretty much a deadly combination for redfish and speckled trout.

Below is a list of all the materials I used to tie this fly.
Hook: Gamakatsu SS15 in size 2
Thread: Danville 210 Flat waxed in brown
Tail: Black barred rubber legs
Dubbing: Trilobal dubbing in brown stone
Weight: Gold lead dumbbell eyes in 5mm
UV Resin: Solarez "Bone Dry"

Mimics Brown trout? Or brown shrimp? You've got brownies on the mind! As always, nice tie. I'll have to add this to my growing quiver of shrimp patterns and sliders.
