first off i tie flies but i don't fish saltwater. here's what i know about the fly, the original version worked around aklins which i believe has a light colored sand botom. they were also tied in olive for fishing weedy areas where the shrimp are apparently olivey. the natural was a light tan with brown bands in the one photo i was able to find of a banded snapping shrimp.
