Tied on a super-strong SP600 size 2 Japanese Tiemco black-nickel fly hook with a hidden mono weed guard, this design has a considerable gape for solid hooking! It rides with the hook facing up. This heavy Shrimp pattern was built for the depths, like drop-offs and channels, where the big boys lurk. Stu designed this Deadly Shrimp on an adventure decades ago in New Caledonia, in the Pacific. A proven winner. A favourite for Australian Fly Fishermen.
Boasting a clear stiff back and dumbbells for weight, plus a shining body, shrimp eyes, and two-tone marabou plumes that quiver and twitch on the bottom, it's sure to excite large fish with a shrimp-loving palate, such as Permit, Bonefish, Triggerfish, and Trevally.
Remember, Having more than one good fly and the right size is always good. So, the more significant the pack, the better; that way, you will have a few staple flies doubled and trebled up in the pack selection.
As we know, there's nothing worse than losing the only fly you have that works.
