Is that a hand tied shrimp on the right? If so that is amazing!

I take it that this is a salt water pattern then right?

This one is tied on a size #10 hook to represent a species mysis shrimp called a grass shrimp . They can take quite a bit of brackish to saltwater but they are most often found in freshwater. You could tie this pattern in a larger size on a stainless steel hook and it would work very well for saltwater species. I tie and fish these for bluegills , crappie and other panfish. I just sent some size 14 to a friend in Michigan who will use them for steelhead and bows.

Fred, you have an eye for imitation like no other. You never fail to impress the heck out of me with your flies!

So, do you just HAMMER fish on these flies or what??? ;oD

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...
