Splott Shrimp

I've used UV-resin in the past for fly tying, but never really come up with a pattern where it gave any benefit over using varnish and some patience. However recently I've been experimenting with it again and have come up with some new patterns where using UV-resin in the construction enables creating effects which would just not be possible with varnish or epoxy resin. The Splott Shrimp is the first of these patterns. Using UV-resin to bond together different layers and colours of organza ribbon allows the finished body to have internal structures and transparency that are characteristic of the natural shrimp. Thanks for watching.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

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.
