I was looking for a redfish fly that was simple, landed soft, sank quick and was easy to tie. The POI Shrimp was inspired by Tim Borski's Butterfly and Larry Haine's Supreme Shrimp. Tied bendback style with a weighted keel it is just the ticket for the oyster bars and irresistible to redfish and snook. Also a great fly to throw for tripletail.
I use tan rubber legs for antennae, EP Shrimp Dubbing Brush with rubber legs for the body, flower craft stamens for the eyes, tan Supreme Hair for the carapace and topped with root beer Crystal Flash.
Give one of these a try, you will like the way they fish.
