JC's Shrimp Fly
tied by jobina
Fly Type: Epoxy,
Target Species: Freshwater Bass, Bonefish, Peacock Bass,
Recommended Region: Other,
1.) Hook – Gamakatsu hook size #6 / #8.
2.) Thread – Clear Mono
3.) Eye – 30lb mono line (burned on each end)

5.) Outer body – White / Golden Olive / medium Olive dubbing
6.) Head – Krystal Flash Shrimp Pink / Pearl White + Polar Flash Pearl
7.) Finishing – 5 minutes epoxy.
Tying Instructions: Step #1: Tie in the Shrimp eye from using the 30lb monoline (burned on both end, and bend into half) on the the bend of the hook.
Step #2: Put in the lead wire 0.20gm behind the eyes of the shrimp. Rib it round about half of the hook length.
Step #3: Use the White dubbing hare fur to dub the body of the shrimp behind the mono eyes covering the lead wire until the hook eye.
Step #4: Then rib 3-4 rounds of the Golden olive fur followed by Olive fur dubbing behind the mono eyes.
Step #5: Tie in the Pearl White flashabou behind the mono eyes. Then cover by the Krystal Flash pink on top and the Polar Flash Pearl. Tie the Polar flash until the hook eye & whip finish.
Step #6: Lastly, put on the 5 minutes epoxy onto the fly to craft out the body of the shrimp. Put on bit by bit and not to over do it too much.
Then let it dry...and it is ready to fish.
