EP Grass Shrimp

The EP Grass Shrimp is a extremely deadly and life like shrimp pattern.  The EP Grass Shrimp is also relatively easy to tie (at least by most "realistic" fly standards).  The EP Grass Shrimp can be tied in a variety of colors, with Tan, Olive, Brown and White being the most popular colors.  The EP Grass Shrimp can be quickly tied with UV cure resins, but is best fished and most durable when tied with epoxy.  The EP Grass Shrimp is a great pattern for Redfish, Tarpon and Snook.  But can be used for anything that eats a shrimp!

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
