Here's the "recipe" for my Live Shrimp:
1/0 O’Shaunesy Hook
(2) Mono Shrimp Eyes
(2) Copper tentacles
Brush and Wing Fibre -grey/natural
1” Stream Brush streamer material – natural
Scuplture flash – natural,
Large Dumbbell eye
Place hook in vice with point down.
Wrap thread at bend and then up to eye.
Tie on dumbbell eye at hook eye on top of hook.
Tie in about a ¼” of .025 lead behind dumbbell
Roll hook over. Behind dumbbell, tie on clump of tan marabou, hanging over hook eye. Trim to
make “tail” of shrimp.
Roll hook over. Wrap thread back to bend of hook.
Tie on mono shrimp eyes on each side of hook. Place a drop of glue between eyes at hook and let
dry to keep eyes spread out. Glue thread and lead and dumbbell, too.
Tie on tentacles, hanging out from bend of hook.
Tie on clump of Sculpture flash hanging out from bend of hook to form head
Tie on small clump of Brush and Wing Fibre hanging out from bend of hook to form horn.
