This fly was tied by the late Scotty Howell for Salmonfly.Net. You can see more of his flies and his notes at The Flies of Scott Howell.  See His notes below:

Scottie's Notes: Stevie's Shrimp was originated by world-class angling guide and master tyer, Stevie Munn of County Antrim, Northern Ireland. My variation on his Shrimp pattern was tied on a larger hook and has a slightly different Tag, Veil, and Body treatment. The original design and Rx can be found on Stevie's website, http://www.anglingclassics.co.uk/.
