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

The peterson spawning shrimp is a terrific permit fly too (at least it was in Belize). It is simple to figure out if you buy one. I shorten the rubber legs of the back because of short strikes.

Tarpon will eat it up for sure. A real show stopper for cruising bones and my top choice for targeting double digit bones in shallow water, although the weighted clouser makes sense where a bit deeper.

I had one left in Acklins recently when I walked several miles of flats looking for d/d bones. As I approached the green tin roof B&B I spotted two 10-12# bones near the third mangrove outcropping visible from the road, coming from the Harry Creek side.

I tied my last virgin Peterson's on and made a cast, perhaps a bit over cautious as it was not seen by these behemoths patrolling the shadows of the magrove stand.

To make a better presentation I stripped the fly hurriedly back before my chance expired and cuda shot out from beneath the shadows and made quick work of my leader and last petersons.

I never saw the two big bones again and walked back to join the gang. Great fly, had fish turn after being spooked to pick it up.

I think we generally fish too small for bones and this is a nice big "eat me" pattern.

I think the recipe for the Peterson pattern in on the Orvis website. Between the rabbit, rubber legs and googly eyes it is a deadly pattern (in Abaco at least).

Peterson Shrimp

Just returned from South Andros with Drew and his gang and the Peterson was by far the go to fly.The Orvis fly is shown with tan rabbit and a short hook,if you really want to see it work tie it on a tiemco 9394 and use Artic Fox or Finnish Racoon in atan or butterscotch and its a absolute killer.

...and Drew tied the one in my story above.

He does tie them amazingly well. Those eyes have got to be a trigger.

I think the trigger is the rabbit and the orange fur and the rubber legs and the pearl flash and the burnt mono eyes and the ......
