Icelandic Shrimp…

This pattern is very easy to tie and do not demand a lot of expensive materials. It originates from Iceland. It consists of hackle stems and then hackle is used as body. You can put in som cdc, flash materials or as in this picture some arctic fox. These ones is tied on a double hook intented for salmon, but it`ll work just as well on a single hook. Go ahead and tie some!
