Last night I was finally able to sit down and get started on my contribution to this swap.
I know that Hero likes his shrimp flies tied on doubles. That being the case, I think he’s going to absolutely love these hooks I found. They’re just like doubles, but with an extra hook. That makes them much more effective than regular doubles when you're standing out there in the middle of the river trying to snag an Atlantic in the gut. In fact I’m tempted to call these hooks extreme, but I won’t.
Seeing as how time is of the essence, I’ve decided to go with a fairly simple pattern. Anyone interested in viewing the full SBS can find it on my blog. (NOTE: whiskey cork and cigar cutter are for SCALE ONLY!)
Though this fly doesn’t look like much just sitting there on dry granite, it practically comes alive once it gets wet.
Here’s an underwater photo of the same fly.
Hero: please PM me your address and I’ll mail these out to you as soon as they’re finished.
Also, what kind of “extra” are we supposed to include? PBR said he thought it was either doilies or scented soaps, but wasn’t sure. (Between you and me, he's really hoping it's scented soaps.)
