Pink Shrimp Jig – trout, salmon and steelhead hair jig tying

Underwater action and full tying SBS on the Pink Shrimp Jig.

Shrimps are an important food source for most saltwater fish, but a Shrimp imitation works great in freshwater as well – especially when fishing for anadromous migrating fish. Salmon, sea run brown trout, steelhead and other species loves a juicy shrimp.

My Pink Shrimp Jig is inspired partly by Danish saltwater fly fishing master Claus Eriksen’s cool Pattegrisen – a fly I also have an SBS on on my channel :0) (watch it here… https://youtu.be/XXPb0sHFUJw) – and partly by my own P & S Shrimp (here… https://youtu.be/IpG3UiDYub8).

My jig is primarily tied for the spinning rod, but in small sizes on a mini jig hook, it will work fine on a fly rod as well. The main attraction on the jig versus the traditional fly, is the illusion of the lifelike movements of a shrimp trying to escape a predator.

Happy tying :0) Michael
