    Ok so with help from my wife I have found enough of the materials to get me started. I ended up having to make my own mono eyes but this is the end product. I would like to see what the rest of you have? image.jpg

    Homemade mono eyes are better. They look real and don't break like the storebought plastic ones do.
    There's a product that's called DNA frosty fish fibre that might be the green and white material.
    Nice shrimp by the way

    The material is correct just the color is off. It is a pattern that I got from thefeatherbender.com. It is very easy to tie. Think you

    No. The fly is tied with ribbon. If you go to thefeatherbender.com web page its called a ribbon Shrimp. He tells you how to tie the fly step by step. That's a lot easier then me trying to go through it for you. image.jpg
