Cruse Shrimp

 
tied by P. G. Beckett
Fly Type: General Saltwater,
Target Species: General Bluewater,
Recommended Region: Other,
Imitation: Shrimp/Prawns,
Material List:
1. chamois
2. zonker strip (all colors)
3.bead chain eyes (all colors)
4. the colors are unlimited
5. thread depends on the size of the hook
6. hook sizes from a freshwater 14 to a saltwater 5/0
It can be made to float, suspend, slow sink etc.
NOTE: This fly lacks antennae (they will only wrap around your leader or the fly's body)
Tying Instructions: Sorry, It would take a book chapter to correctly explain the various techniques of tying these ultra durable shrimp flies. I am currently in the process of writing a book that will include this tie and many others.I use many tying techniques that are not published or known by other tyers or people in the fly tying industry.
Presentation Tips: This is a forward swimming shrimp design to catch ambush and pelagic species.You can almost make it do anything, except flee backwards. My personal record is 78 fish (comb. of seatrout, redfish, mangove snapper and ladyfish) without having to change the fly.
