For stripers in the Northeast, bonefish or tarpon in the Keys or redfish in Texas, shrimp are juicy and delicious. The Slinky Shrimp is a versatile design that's easily modified to match the hatch of your local fishery, and when used in conjunction with the right retrieve and an intermediate line, few game fish can pass it up.
The standard Slinky Shrimp mimics the white shrimp, which is especially common in Florida's coastal waters. It's lightweight, making it easy to cast, and on its descent it moves in such a way that it really looks real. This pattern has quickly become my go-to fly whenever I'm fishing a shrimp area.
