About tutorial metrics:
Difficulty: Tying in a clump of material, palmering a material, and x-wrapping dumbbell eyes are considered easy techniques to master. As additional techniques are needed for a pattern, the difficulty rating increases.
Time: The average time the fly will likely take you to tie once you get proficient at it. Obviously the first few are going to take longer.
Cost: The total cost of all the materials needed for the fly, compared to all the other flies in the Fly Tying Video Vault.
Where to fish: backcountry, warmwater lakes/ponds/rivers/canals
Notes: Dubbing wax and combing out the carp dub gives this fly a bit more movement and a better body. When you cut the foam, try to cut it as straight as possible. Make sure to tightly secure the wraps on and below the foam so it does not twist.
Richie P’s Poppin Prawn is the perfect little backwater topwater shrimp fly. A fly that makes a large thump when stripped in, this pattern is sure to pull the fish from deep in the mangroves to come out and attack. The double-thick two-tone foam keeps this fly riding high and adds even more durability and contrast.
