Foxy Shrimp tied by Nick Davis of 239 Flies

When Nick ran into oldtimer Marsh Demott and was told about this fishcatcher, he paid attention. He took the original pattern and made a couple minor adjustments. The Foxy Shrimp, as the name implies is a fox hair based shrimp. The pattern takes advantage of both a section of dubbing loop and a wire brush. The video also gives you a good overview of some of the newer Loon tying tools. The bright yellow should stand out on a messy desk and allow you to quickly find your tools. Hope to see the Loon Nit Picker added to the line-up soon.

If you want a kit with everything you need to tie this pattern, you can find it here on Nick’s site.
