Saltwater Shrimp tied by Ruben Martin

Saltwater shrimp flies are essential to a successful fishing trip to the flats. I’ve been frantically tying saltwater flies for the winter season and I’d like to give this shrimp pattern a good look. A few things to note, first, the epoxy eyes are dipped in a clear glitter nail polish. You’ll want to make sure this completely cures before you box it. The eyes themselves look like a custom job, and I’d love to see how he goes about making them. The fox hair wing and tail(mouth parts) is a favorite material to work with. I prefer it to the much loved craft fur because of the natural randomness it provides and the way it moves in the water. The fly is capped off with a dab of orange paint (eggs?), something I would personally omit. I can’t wait to toss this into some warm brine this winter.
