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.

White Zonker

dryfly.me.2013.09.white_zonker_2Heading out to do some more fishing tomorrow and sat down with a strip of white rabbit zonker and tied up some variations on the same theme: some with eye, some shorter and on different hooks. I prefer to tie up and fish different styles to see how they behave when they actually sit on the end of a tippet, so it will be a friday with experiments on these (and some baitfish). Which one would you tie up if you got handed these?
