... and the original shrimp pattern I had tied, this time in a size 8 rather than the 2 and 4 I had been working on... also, using dumbbell at the eye with a very thin strip of foam along the bottom of the shank (which is the dorsal side of the fly) in order to get the shrimp to swim upright yet sink telson-first, as a normal shrimp often does... just before he's eaten...
