Tom Berry's shrimp


This is a process I've been working with lately. The body form is packageing plastic which is sanded on both sides. All the coloring is on the inside in reverse order and both sides covered with 2-ton epoxy. Similar flies are used in Alaska and Norway by a friend of mine. When actually used for fishing I eliminate the tail.

Great shrimp! How do you secure the plastic shell to the tube?
