P & S Shrimp – fly tying – video

A shrimp pattern that I made for sea trout fishing in saltwater and brackish water estuaries in Scandinavia. P & S Shrimp stands for Plain & Simple Shrimp, since this fly is pretty easy to tie – and super effective. I use several different hooks models for this one: short shank as well as long shank shrimp hooks.

P & S Shrimp
Hook: I tie it on a wide range of hooks: Partridge Saltwater Shrimp and a wide gap sickle style hook and lots of others
Thread: Mostly I use white – you choose the brand
Tail: Natural Sculpin Wool (Dark Roe Orange) suggesting the mouth parts of the shrimp
Eyes: Easy Shrimp Eyes (Black)
Butt: Natural Sculpin Wool (Dark Roe Orange). This is used to spread the hackle
Feelers: strands of Mother of Pearl soft flash (or Crystal flash or similar)
Hackle: Teal or grey mallard… as legs
Body: Woolly Sparkle Dub (2 – 3 sections, depending on the hook length)
