The Scrimp- Mysis Shrimp Pattern

This is just a little shrimp pattern I came up with while I was working in Colorado.  It is a bit flashier than most of the shrimp patterns out there.  I worked really well at the Frying Pan and the Taylor and hooked many of those pot bellied trout beasts.  I say "hooked" because those trout are really tough to land... or maybe I just blew it.  Anyway,

Thorax: White Egg Yarn, Dubbed in a ball
