Getting a little shrimpy at the vise tonight

With a trip to Washington coming up, it's time to start hitting the vise hard again. Here's a take on a steelhead prawn that I'm fairly happy with. This started as a GP, but I ended up winging it after I tied in the bucktail. I saw some orange guinea out of the corner of my eye and ended up here.

Plus, I've heard steelhead eat prawns sometimes

Another fly to be placed on my 'To tie list'.

Thanks for the idea of using the orange guinea. I had good intentions of experimenting with it, but now your post has definitely given me some good ideas.


That was not a bad cast. I was just casting to the nearby fish.

Looks killer. I like the prominent eyes - just begging for 'attention."
