Oaklind Easy Shrimp Step By Step 22 Januari 2012

Here is a simple and easy shrimp pattern that works and looks really nice.
It has a transparant look in the water and the seatrout loves it.

Oaklind Easy Shrimp

Hook: Partridge YK12ST size 10
Thread: Uni-Thread gray 6/0
Eyes: Shrimp eyes
Antennas: Brown fox tail
Body: EP-Shrimp Dub Brush

Throw the hook in the wise and wrap the shank as in the picture.

Tie in a bunch of fox tail and secure it well.

Tie in the eyes with a figure eight wind.

Tie in a pice of EP-Shrimp dub brush over the eyes and secure it well.

Wind the dub brush forward and fold the fibres backwards. Don´t wrap the brush to tight otherwise you loose the transparant look. Secure the brush with the thread and make a little head. Whip finish and secure with a drop of Loon knot sense. Use an old toothbrush and comb the fibres backwards.

The shrimp is done and will be perfect for seatrout, bonefish, tarpon or other saltwater fishes.

A new year means new gear!

Well .. it was a long time since I posted something on the blog but here I am. I hope you got som fresh gear from santa last year. I got my hands on a new wading jacket (Guideline Kispiox) and a new pair of waders(Guideline Crosswater) , a real bargain.

I also ordered a Lamson Konic that will fit my Sage Launch rod perfect.

Lamson Konic, great reel with killer brake for that price.
 I also have started to tie up some seatrout flies for the seatroutbox. Here are some candy:

These shrimps will work nice when the water starts to warm up

The seatrout box, it is not done yet, some patterns will change over time
