Golden Badger (black based fibers with golden brown tips) colored shrimp fly on a #2 Mustad Tarpon Hook. Outstanding fiber movement draws a lot of strikes from anything that eats shrimps...and EVERYTHING eats shrimp. This is a Claus Ericson pattern adapted for tropical waters utilizing stronger, heavier hooks and tied to slowly sink. Being a handcrafted product using mostly natural materials, the flies will vary a bit. The body is counter wound with mono and the top "shell" coated with UV resin for added strength. This features a flashback (thanks to Kai at Nanko) that I hand cut so there is even more variations than usual between each fly. This is a variation of Claus Ericson's pattern utilizing a different back shell and creating a "tail" that makes the shrimp dart mostly upwards with every jerk. When fished behind a floater, the fly will often splash the surface drawing attention of predators.
The underwater video clip is a generic shrimp video to show the movement of the shrimp through the water.
I like to use a short, sweeping pull with the rod with a brief pause to let the fly sink a bit and allow the fibers to pulsate.
