I also saw those shrimp at Lake Shore and thought they looked really nice. I'm sure they'll catch fish.
That's when I decided to try to make my own.
I used white chenille for the body, palmered some hackle and topped the fly with Flashabou to give it translucence.
I weighted the size 4 Mustad 3366 hook with lead under the chenille.
The tail (or front) is tan buck tail.
I did not color the eyes. The blue mono turned green when I melted it. I just wish they were a little bigger.
In any case I think this fly will work nicely drifted along rip rap or near pilings for white perch or maybe even a rogue striper looking for a tiny meal.
