The funny thing about the LC Shrimp is that the origin's of the fly was a blog/online article I read in late 2008 about a craft fur shrimp. As many interations as I have had with my pattern, I have never tied it with any craft fur. I had some EP fibers that I had gotten, and never used, and I had this crinkled nylon that was tannish in color, and that is what I used initially for the fly. Over time I changed it as I ran out of material (never could find any of that crinkly nylon I had used), and started with the silky fibers, and that is what it is today.
