Lipstick Shrimp Variation

2014.09.24.dryfly.me.white_shrimp

Hook: TMC777SP #6
Thread: UNI 6/0 White
Mouth: Templedog White, Eumer Goat, Hareline Woolhead Dubbing, Red Prismacolor marker
Eyes: Bug Bond
Body: Hareline Woolhead Dubbing
Dubbingloop over body: Mix of Hareline Ice Dub Silver Holographic, Hareline Woolhead Dubbing  and Sealwool VB-Dubbing

Yes, I’m on a seatrout tying mission these days, and today was a variation of the lipstick shrimp from Eivind Berulfsen. I basicly didn’t have any of the materials he lists, but the technique is what’s important: to learn the layering and idea behind it, how things fit together. After that you can start looking at what material you have or can get a hold of that will behave close to the original as possible. I think the goat in the mouth will create that long translucent effect, and the combinations I put together for the body should give a very nice effect when it is wet and flowing through water.

I will, of course, have to try this out, but that is for next week since I have plans this week that stops me from going out fishing, but until then I will tie up a couple more of this to bring with me.

Body: UNI Floss Green, Lagartun French Tinsel rib
Wing: Templedog Black&Red
Hackle: Wapsi Strung Schlappen black & red
Cone: Eumer Brass monster Cone Medium

Back to this pattern again today to test out the Eumer brass cone. These massive hairwings can deal with quite the large cone, and with the large hackle I put on it doesn’t get out of proportions
