Fly Patterns

Shrimp: Grey & Pink

Recreate fly patterns at home! Materials used in making this fly have been included below. Always keep in mind your local fly-fishing store will most likely have the materials referenced, and typically for less. Materials can also be found at Amazon or any other major on-line resource.

Fly-Tying Materials

  • Mustad 34007SS (#4)
  • UTC 210, fluorescent shell pink
  • Ande 40 lb Monofilament (dipped in Sally Hansen’s black nail polish)
  • Lady Amherst, red
  • Krystal Flash, black/ pearl
  • Bucktail, grey
  • Ande 40 lb Monofilament (weed guard)

Design Inspiration & Detail

Here’s one of our renditions of a Ghost shrimp – another great fly for fishing South Florida and Caribbean flats. Anything that looks like a shrimp, crab or baitfish with natural colors and an splash of something bright is already the perfect fly for catching some local game fish. As always, the metallic/ crystal flash really gives the fly some life. Be creative and change up colors. Options for upgrading the pattern are endless.

Target Species

This particular fly was designed to attract Bonefish, Permit, Snook, and Redfish – jacks and many other species will also take the fly.
