Fluoro Shrimp was tied by the late Scott Howell of Bothell, WA who contributed to this site for many years.
SCOTT'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.
