Cook's Critter/Shrimp



Hook: Straight eye, standard length

Hackle: palmered over body
Shellback: Pearlescent green mylar tubing
Wing: Fluorescent green calftail

Notes: Developed by Vance Cook in the mid 1980's for seatrout. This is an impressionistic shrimp that can be tied in a variety of colors that are effective on bonefish and redfish, but this green variation is still best for trout.
