We Got these shrimps in from Christian Krogh in Denmark. He writes……
I love to tie shrimp flies, and I am very inspired by Jonatan Ternald’s shrimp flies. They are quite challenging to tie and take for me a lot of time to bind, but with a little practice and the right materials they can become very lifelike in the water. There is ample opportunity to vary the look and in this variant I have tried to make a version that comes as close to a real live shrimp as possible. The challenge is for me to put my legs firmly and at the same time be fairly straight, and with Raidzap, I glue my legs firmly with a small drop of glue and attach them to the body. When I’m happy with the location, the legs get a drop of glue more to attach them completely. In the end, there is a back skirt that is just super fat, and makes a nice finish with a thin layer of Raidzap Medium and Thin. Then it’s just off to the coast for seatrouts…..
