I know im overdoing it when im tying these shrimps.. but theres alot of things in this pattern that i get stuck on, so its a great practise as well =)

Bass i think pink is a great coler for a winter fly.
but 2 days ago this fly was the winner[attachmentid=7418]
59 cm. 2 kg.[attachmentid=7419]
Yes great rod(Tcr) wish i had the money for it wallbash.gif
But there is a lot of great Shrimp patterns on the web
the ones Stoltze recommended is also great.
and remember to fish them slowly

Ahh man TCR! Nice catch!
Does that fly acually imitate anything or is it just an attractor.
If you got it dry somewhere id love to see the fly smile.gif


I got an XP 590 but was using a tcr 590 a few weeks ago.. and it blew me away. Even tho the XP is one of the finest #5 ive seen.. it was like going from a KIA to a Ferrari lol.
