Tying Video: Crystal River Gangsta Shrimp

This is a fairly easy fly to tie and is a must have for those spending time chasing reds, snook, and trout around the waters of Homosassa, Ozello, and Crystal River, Fl. This fly has a ton of flash and the soft materials do a great job giving life to the fly. The pattern in this video contains lead eyes; however, I also tie this pattern with gold bead chain as well.

This video should have done a great job explaining the steps and the materials needed to construct this fly. If you have any other questions or would like to request a fly to be tied in an up and coming video, please leave a comment or send me an email.

I’m Capt. Jesse Males, an avid fly fishing, snook snatching, kayak paddling, tarpon slaying, mountain hiking, manatee swimming fool from Central Florida. Over the years fly fishing has had a huge impact on my life and particularly on how I view the world we spend our time in. I am currently the owner and operator of backwaterflyfishing.com as well as our online fly shop, backwaterflies.com. The lifestyle that is called fly fishing has taken me to some amazing destinations and has provided me with some amazing experiences in the wild. From chasing big salty critters in the Florida Keys, to roosters in Coast Rica, to small wild trout in the Carolinas, and all the way up to the high mountain cutthroat of Wyoming; I have been blessed to experience fly fishing at its finest.
