  1. 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.

    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,


    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

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

    Sunglasses, maybe = would suggest a welders facemask myself! I have been feeling very colorful all spring....

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