This original pattern was tied by contributing fly tyer, Scott Howell. You can see more of Scott Howell's flies at The Flies of Scott Howell.See his notes below about this fly

Scotty's Notes: This original pattern was inspired by Fred Contaoi's 'Crystal Shrimp' and another nymph/shrimp design by Pete Peterson called 'Pete's Lady Bug'. The Fluoro Shrimp's slightly darker colors and 'buggier' look can be an effective change-of-pace fly from the more popular vivid orange patterns.
