Woolie Shrimp, Purple

Name Woolie Shrimp, Purple
Category Steelhead/Pacific Salmon
Thread Red
Tail Hot Pink Goat Hair, Long
Body Purple Chenille
Hackle Purple Saddle Hackle Palmered over body
Collar Purple Marabou
Head Red

This fly is a rough variation of the steelhead fly originated by Joe Butoric. Butoric's fly, the "Steel Woolie" is tied with a longer tail and a shorter collar. The palmered body and long tail combine the characteristics of two other effective patterns, the "Wooly Bugger" and the "Comet". Pink and white are one of my favorite color combinations for Steelhead but this fly can be tied in a variety of colors to suit conditions. See also, Woolie Shrimp, Pink, and Woolie Shrimp, Chartreuse.
