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:
