John, I'm in for 7.
Q, that's some nice epoxy work. I have not tried that pattern, I'm tying a suspending sub-surface shrimp to be fished in current. That ultra shrimp looks good for skipping along the bottom.

I used tan superhair, which is almost colorless in small quantities, with a few strands of olive superhair mixed in. The result is a transparent shrimp with darker veins running through the body. Subsequent versions will have antennae (which I forgot to include on this fly) and a better overall shape and finish than the prototype.
Here's a higher resolution scan that shows the translucent body and darker veins:

OK, I think I've decided on a pattern. It will be a Popovics Ultra Shrimp-style grass shrimp unless the meister feels that we have enough Ultra Shrimp entries already, in which case I will choose another pattern.
Here's my first effort:

Fly Swap 2
Just for clarity (so I don't mess up again), how many shrimp are we tying? I'm thinking of doing a grass shrimp version of the General Practitioner from Ken Abrames book. It's definitely something different.

May have to get a few hints starting points. I think I am leaning toward more of an impressionist type of fly like I see in Kaufman's Bonefish book.
