Default Kitchen sink shrimp

Wanted to try a sunburst shrimp pattern using a sunburst-dyed badger cape that just arrived (thanks Laurie!). Improvised with materials I had on hand, and the outcome was sort-of-colorful . The tags too long. Thanks for looking.

Alec Jackson spey #7
tag: holographic green tinsel
tail: GP tippet
body: ice dub in UV shrimp, then UV black backing up to wing
ribbing: holographic mylar silver
wing: flo orange marabou (didn't have any arctic...)
Hackles: long red GP body, scarlet chinese, JC eyes, then badger-dyed sunburst for halo effect

Nice work Hugh,

You need some #6 & 8 doubles for these patterns, they just look good on doubles. Of course the hooks hold fish well also and ride upright about 99% of the time too. I've been thinking on tying some of this style myself, thanks for the nudge,

Ard

Hugh: Very nice, but your thread title should come with a warning to wear sunglasses!
I love how that sunburst cape turned out.

Sunglasses? Perhaps. But without a hyphen, I was expecting a riddle:
