    Default Ideas for improvement

    Morning guys below is a shrimp pattern I tied on the week end and was wondering if it would work in the estuaries in SA and would welcome any ideas for improvement

    Make a pink version aswell.

    We like pink here in sunny SA.

    I did think of tying one in a pink and one in white, my idea was to try and make it look like ginger shrimp that I used to fish with in Durban

    very nice....

    Try using polar plus for the belly section. Wrap it round an then tease it out with velcro once its complete. start with some orange first and then your natural colour on top.

    Nice looking fly!

    Only thing that I would suggest is that you make the eyes a bit more prominent?

    Cheers
