Suede Shrimp

tied by dwiltshire
Fly Type: Weighted,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: General Europe,
Imitation: Shrimp/Prawns,
Material List:
Hook: B100 #14
Ballast: Lead wire, tied in layers on the top of the hook
Thread: 14/0 Sheer, tan
Legs: English Partridge
Body: Olive Awsome Possum
Shell back: Super Suede, chocolate
Rib: Fine silver wire
Tying Instructions: I gave this ballast with the laters of round lead built upon the top of the hook. This gives the nice 'hump' that I was after. Then the rib and the partridge is tied in, followed by the dubbing.

The final part is adding the suede shell-back - first trapped in with thread wraps, then followed up by the silver wire rib.
Presentation Tips: Dep, deep, deep ;)
