Lagathu's shrimp

It might seem simple, but this piece of epoxy art is far from an easy pattern to tie.

Is there a specific type of Epoxy you prefer to use for this fly? Also, what did you use to make the rings around the body of the the shrimp? I live in southern Texas on the gulf, and want to try to tie this fly before January gets here. When the cold fronts arrive, the local electric company discharge will have lots of Huge 24 to 27 inch Specks held up in the warm water, this happens usually from Jan to March.

We have many other and simpler shrimp patterns on the site. Look at all our pages with shrimps here.


I am Mary, live in georgia , is trying my best to learn how to cast my fly rod and what to use on my rod and my spinners. I find the things you have so overwhelming I think I can make one of these shrimp things. do you have some simple one for a beginner like me.
