Let’s size up a shrimp pattern for saltwater.

A compadre of mine asked if I could fashion a grass shrimp that was 3 to 4 times larger than my mysis shrimp so that he could chase redfish in his native Texas on the Gulf. It had to be tied on a saltwater hook and it had to be really durable.

I used the basic concept from my mysis shrimp, combined it with some of the principles from my carp flies and came up with this.

The 3/32” tubing can be found on the web and the rest of the materials can be found at your local fly shop or online.
