Starburst Brown Shrimp

About: I am an avid fly fisherman, and started a fly fishing channel where I tie flies and video myself fishing.

Brown shrimp are a very common food source for many fish. I used to fish quite regularly in the gulf of mexico, and it was probably the most common bait people used out there. Many fish like redfish and seatrout love these little snack meals. This fly mimics the looks of a brown shrimp, but also with the right fishing techniques can also mimic the movement almost perfectly. You will catch lots of fish with this fly.
