    Nice fly concept and video except it needs a materials list or link to the list & tying instructions.

    So it takes 3+ days to tie? Lots of shirt changes going on there. Decent tie but probably not worth the time, unless you’re never throwing it near a mangrove or dock–which are obviously great places to fish a shrimpy fly like that. I would have preferred video cut through all the foam finishing (fine to see how the shape is created, epoxy+paint+epoxy+drying could have just been put in description along with the recipe like others stated)

    Has the reverse orientation (shrimp pop tail first) affected its catchability?
