Hi,
I am planning to travel to Magnolia, MA beginning of August. My old fishing friend there is getting a little old and I would like to fish with him before we can't anymore.
Part of the trip will be fresh water in Maine where Donni has a cottage and I think I own all the flies required there, part will be saltwater in the Cape Anne area. I lived and worked ther for two years and have still a lot of the usual striper fly suspects and tied a few new ones.
I am looking to tie a few shrimps. I think the Honey Shrimp as featured in the tying section on a 2# hook is a fine design. Any opposite opinions alternative patterns? Which colour?
Thanks for any help

Hi Florian,

Tied these a while back for a friend of mine going to Florida for tarpon, but I think they`d work for stripers as well. Pattern is the same as you can find here on GFF.

Pattegrisen/"The Pink Pig" tied on 4/0 Owner Aki`s,








Cheers,
Peter

Hi Peter,
thanks for the hint. I had to improvise a little because I didn`t have the spey hackles required. I exchanged them for hen hackles. I will give the pattern a shot,
