Jay’s Impromptu Ghost Shrimp

In this video, Jay Nicholas ties up a shrimp pattern on the spot inside the shop.

Using new Ahrex 250 Salt Water Shrimp Hooks, Jay decided to tie up a shrimpy pattern using traditional materials such as Ice Dubbing and Senyo’s Fusion Dubbing, incorporated Fair Flies Composite Brushes and saddle hackle with some Aquflies Shrimp Ultra Eyes for an awesome looking pattern.

Used for salt water creatures such as tarpon and bonefish, Jay bets this would also catch steelhead here in Oregon and elsewhere.
