Turbo Shimp


Bob writes: Every once in a while you hit the perfect storm and for me it was this fly (lure?). It's one of a very few flies of mine that Yuri Shumakov would use in Kamchatka (the other being Linda's Shrimp). It was so successful Yuri's only problem others would steal them, now its a big hit in Alaska, also some brave Scots are using it in red, black and orange. And yes, that's a straw in there... and a spinner blade in the front...

I would love to see a video version. I am not a fly maker, but this lure is my wake up call. It is a genius idea. Well done.
