I know thats totaly off the hook, but knowing shrimp, there must be a reason for the hard work......

i have been experimenting and will soon add several more fingernail spoon adaptations (images) to my spoonflies post.
one especially promising spoon sports a brilliant copper colored mylar and another wears a dazzling brass flicked reflective tape. easy to attach easy to build.
moreover, they are built with several different style hooks. i hope to try them out this fall/winter and determine which color and type of hook works best on steelhead.
please understand the initiative behind this endeavor was to develop a fly-cast lure for waters declared fly fishing only, as we have in places and times on the mighty rogue.

I gotta say in all my years of fly tying, your designs are perhaps the most innovative concepts I've seen.
Hats off to you for thinking outside the box!

I tied a shrimp pattern when I first saw this thread. I am now getting ready to try some painted ones to look more like fry for the Metolious's BIG bull trout. One guy went the other day and hooked 7 with a 27" being the biggest. I will let everyone and especially Shrimp know how it went. Good luick everyone.

My wife just looked at this and said a lady just got her nails done. Every other finger so six fingers in total. She payed $75 bucks. I see a side job for you if this does not get any fish.
