EP Grass Shrimp

EP Grass Shrimp Fly Tying Video Instructions

The EP Grass Shrimp is a extremely deadly and life like shrimp pattern.  The EP Grass Shrimp is also relatively easy to tie (at least by most “realistic” fly standards).  The EP Grass Shrimp can be tied in a variety of colors, with Tan, Olive, Brown and White being the most popular colors.  The EP Grass Shrimp can be quickly tied with UV cure resins, but is best fished and most durable when tied with epoxy.  The EP Grass Shrimp is a great pattern for Redfish, Tarpon and Snook.  But can be used for anything that eats a shrimp!
