Tight Line Shrimp
A go to shrimp fly for tailing redfish from Laguna Madre based fly fisherman Roy Lopez.
Shrimp seem to be the stock food of a whole row of fish from cold water sea trout to the fish of the warm and tropical realms like the redfish of Texas and the bonefish of the Caribbean.
This fly is designed to look like the real thing, but also have enough color and flash to attract attention though slightly murky water. It's light and fluffy, and will land gently. But its lightness also means that it's not a plunger, and it will no sink swiftly in deeper water, so I prefer using it in the shallows, particularly for tailing redfish on the flats.
