Pattern description: 
Ahrex Shrimp SA250 #6

I'm not particularly fond of these brightly colored shrimp, but they are fun to tie and some look utterly funky.
My darling wife had a lot of leftover green yarn from a knitting project, and I now have scraps for hundreds of bright, green flies. Combined with green legs and bright orange eyes from Easy Shrimp Eyes and tied on an Ahrex Hooks shrimp hook I created this Mean Green Mother from Outer Space.
I probably wouldn't fish it myself, but that doesn't make it less fun to tie.
