Fly Swap 2--Sign up and First report

I wanted to keep this orgainized...for me... so I know a bunch of you said yes to swap # 2 on the other thread, but do you mind signing up on this thread so I can go from here on this next swap.... By the way..Jim Simm's Shrimp flies just came in today.. that was real fast...com'on Jim you had them tied before hand I look forward in seeing the different patterns we come up. After this swap all the participants and other on the Forum should have a good starter library to tye different shrimp.

Yes, I believe I agreed to the shrimp swap, and am signing on for the concurrent flatwing swap.

I'm in.

May have to get a few hints starting points. I think I am leaning toward more of an impressionist type of fly like I see in Kaufman's Bonefish book.

Hhhhmmmm.This is getting interesting all ready... don't be afraid to try something you have not done before..by the time this swap is do we should have enough examples of shrimp to carry us though several seasons and locations...which is the point of all this.

Fly Swap 2

John,

Just for clarity (so I don't mess up again), how many shrimp are we tying? I'm thinking of doing a grass shrimp version of the General Practitioner from Ken Abrames book. It's definitely something different.

Best regards,

-Doc

OK, I think I've decided on a pattern. It will be a Popovics Ultra Shrimp-style grass shrimp unless the meister feels that we have enough Ultra Shrimp entries already, in which case I will choose another pattern.

Here's my first effort:
