The shrimp fly is designed to mimic a variety of different saltwater shrimp species, very different than saltwater crab flies. There are lots of different species, but the main ones are Cleaner shrimps, Banded Coral Shrimps, Peppermint Shrimps (sounds good), Camelback Shrimps, Fire Shrimp, Harlequin Shrimp, and Mantis Shrimp. Most of these shrimps are scavengers, and come out primarily at night to feed. Shrimp fly patterns saltwater should be designed to mimic these different types of shrimp.

Typically, saltwater shrimp flies will be tied by using mainly synthetic materials. Since saltwater shrimp flies take a beating, these synthetic materials hold up way better than natural materials. Shrimp fly materials will consist of, but will not be limited to, things like super hair, angel hair, chenille, estaz, bead chain eyes, lead eyes, and epoxy, just to name a few. These materials will hold up to the environments saltwater fish can be found in. Shrimp flies need to be able to withstand intense UV rays, sand, saltwater itself, and rust. Make sure when done fishing with a shrimp fly, that you take a give it a good freshwater rinse. Doing so will remove the remaining salt on these saltwater flies and help fight corrosion. It is always best to place them on a paper towel when done rinsing to help fight this as well.

When fishing in saltwater, one thing to remember is that most of the fish species that live here have sort of nasty teeth to them. There are exceptions to the rule, but in general, you will want to use a set of forceps or needle nose pliers to remove the hook. This is another reason why saltwater shrimp flies are mainly tied out of synthetic materials ,like Beach Bugger and Beadchain Permit. When you have a fish flopping around at the side of the boat or bouncing around on the sand, getting your favorite hook removal tool inside a fish’s mouth is not an easy task. Often times when you do, you end up grabbing the saltwater fly for fly fishing and twisting and turning it. Forceps, pliers, and nasty teeth aren’t a shrimp fly best friend. Hence another reason to purchase flies that are tied from synthetic material, so browse our selection of shrimp flies for sale on our website and get fishing!
