I wanted to complete my flybox by adding some shrimp. I asked around and heard that the grass shrimp on the north shore are gray. So after looking through the infamous B. Pink list o' tying sites, I threw together this monster. Comments apreciated, especially if you know what the shrimps look like north of Beantown.

hook: size 2

Body: Long polar fibre and flashabou wrapped on shank
Legs: Light grey polar fibre, a few strands red crystal
Eyes: 80 lb. mono, melted beed (cool)
top shell: plastic straw piece
tail: same polar fibre, grey bucktail, cyrstal flash
