Fly Patterns

Tiger Shrimp

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, black
  • Brass Eyes, medium, gold
  • Bucktail, dark brown
  • Marabou, grizzly, burnt orange
  • Krystal Flash, gold
  • Krystal Flash, black/ pearl

Design Inspiration & Detail

Another great fly for fishing the backwaters of South Florida. The natural colors and splash of pale orange are perfect for attracting all crustacean eating predators. As always, adding a splash of crystal flash really gives the fly some life. Be creative and change up colors. Add silicone legs maybe. Options for upgrading the pattern are endless.

Target Species

This particular fly was designed to attract Snook and Redfish – jacks many other species will also take the fly. Toss this up within two feet of the mangrove line, it’s lethal.
