The Junior Mysis
Mysis and shrimp: A fly tied for sea trout in the Baltic area. It proved to be efficient in other places too. Translucent and yet colored. Tie it in olive, rusty or tan and you can imitate any camouflaged mysis - and it will stand out from the crowd. Can be tied by seniors too...

If any weight is required I use lead wire and push it into the piping on the side of the hook I wish to sinkie. point upp or down before I apply the epoxy.
Epoxy is one of the worlds most alargy causing chemicals, so dont get it on you. If so you should clean it off A.S.A.P. with aceton.
If you need to take a leak in the middle of a gluing seccion, bite your lip!
