Scudback shrimp

Materials, in order that they're placed on the hook:

Hook: size 4
Thread: color to match pattern, here 6/0 white
Eyes: black mono
Antennae: rainbow krystal flash
Ribbing: fine copper wire
Body: ice chenille
Shellback: scud back, pearl

The only tricky part is attaching the scud back. It's tied in at the eye and pulled down to the bend over the eyes, and then secured in place with the copper wire. Wrapping the wire is the last thing that's done, securing it at the eye of the hook with the thread that's there waiting for it.

Other good colors are rust, olive, and pink (killer for shad).
