Yes -

The Peterson spawning shrimp is a KILLER. It's probably most photographed in the Orvis catalogs and available from our sponsor tightlinesflyfishing.com

Drew ties them awesomely, can't believe how the fish react to them. It's a goto pattern for big bones in my box.

Enrico P makes a "shrimp dubbing brush" that makes it real easy to make the bodies. The celery & tan colors are nice.

Josko -

I have a variation but the best model I could point you to is the one that Andrew Moy ties over at Tightlines Flyshop, our sponsor in Pinebrook New Jersey.

tightlinesflyfishing.com

If you can't get hold of him let me know and I will prepare a recipe for the archive.

Hey Josko
here are some links to the patterns

<non sponsor links - please guys>

I just tied up a bunch and would be happy to send you a few samples. You might customize the pattern with materials of choice.

Hope it helps
