Default Grizzly Shrimp

Del Canty and Joe Butler caught some monster trout, world records, on the "Grizzly Shrimp". If you have crayfish in your water tie up something similar. My take Sz. 6..........

I don't think the recipe is all that sacred, it's the shape and form that's important. Fur with guard hairs for a tail, squirrel, badger, rabbit etc......, I used fox. A grizzly hackle for a palmer rib and a chenille body (I used med. olive). Extra guard hairs and fur are tied in tips first before the body and hackle and are humped over the body for a carapace and tied at the head of the fly. Feel free to tie a big head with thread.

Think crayfish when you put it together.
