The Chartreuse Carron is roughly based on the Fluorescent Green Shrimp from Peter O'Reilly's fine book, Trout & Salmon Flies of Ireland. I've used colors that are well know attractors for Salmon and Steelhead. Shrimp flies are hugely popular in Ireland which can be attributed for their success in catching fish. The Pattern for the Fluorescent Green Shrimp calls for a Fluorescent Green Floss body; Creamy Badger middle and front hackle; and a roofed Jungle Cock Wing.
