Big Horn Shrimp

 

Big Horn Shrimp

hook curved shrimp or scud hook
hook size(s) 14-16
thread orange or red
body use orange, peach or pink dubbing
tail red squirrel or deer hair
rib use fine copper wire
shellback cut 1/8 inch strip off bread sack, tie over back
weight small lead wire

notes: Don’t know if you have this or not. It works great for me. Wrap small lead wire on hook to help it sink. Block lead on both ends with thread. Tie on tail. Tie on ribbing wire, then plastic strip. Put dubbing on heavy. Pull over plastic strip. Wrap ribbing and tie off. Pull some dubbing down to give the appearance of legs.
