Muskrat Shrimp

tied by Hnat
Fly Type: General Saltwater,
Target Species: Sea Trout,
Recommended Region: General Europe,
Imitation: Shrimp/Prawns,
Material List:
Muskrat fur: a small tuft as head/antennae (including single cf); twisted in dubbing loop, wrapped and trimmed on the body (ribbed with clear mono).
One of the shrimps (actually the slimmer one) is 'bodied' with natural hare dubbing.
Hook: Justice Streamer/nymph, #8.
You may add eyes (any kind), some fancy ribbing, sparkling back, epoxy etc. - but my goal is to present my 'tying ideas' in their basic version to show 'what's that about' (just like my 'Nutria Stonefly' - you can add ribs, epoxy etc. but the exact 'invention' is best seen in the raw, basic version, which is enough for the fish; I like them too :))
Very similar little shrimps/buggers catch Baltic flounders, but are suitable for any shrimp-eater (smaller shrimps).
Tying Instructions: Given above :)
Presentation Tips: Like any shrimp pattern.
