Red Fish Epoxy Rattle Shrimp
My good friend Kyle Burrell-a full-time trout guide on the Chattahoochee and in Wyoming-introduced me to this proven pattern for reds on mud or grass flats. It is also an excellent prospecting fly around oyster rakes and will catch flounder and trout. When you tie it, plan on tying four to six of them in order to utilize the epoxy. This is not an original pattern, although I am sure I have made some modifications to the original recipe. It is great in muddy, stained water.

For a black Rattle Shrimp that is great in really dirty water, use black mylar tubing, Black Flashabou
with chartreuse bucktail underwing (or marabou) and black bucktail overwing.
