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.
