Pattern for Sqrimp
prepare waddington with trailer hook, or can be tied on a tube.
tie in black Estaz, and form a ball, tie off. tail materials will be flared by this ball
tie in sparse amount of black Llama hair, with sparse ostrich hearl laid over.
tie in blue died grizzly hackle on either side
tie in and wrap blue died guinea as a collar
tie in Golden pheasant tippet as per General Practitioner
This sounds like alot, but it's extremely quick work as it is all easily worked with materials and a straightforward application of them
Tie in black estaz again and wrap towards eye.
wrap a blue and a black marabou feather to collar fly and you are done.

I also tie in orange, and you could of course do purple
