Pot Weave Shrimp

A video showing how to complete this fly using the ‘Pot Weave’

I was asked by one of the forum members from the UK Fly Forum to put this video together so that they could perfect the Pot Weave.

I have tied this pattern that I use for grayling in the main but it also works for trout to show the technique.

Materials required are as follows:

  • Hook: Grub hook to suit. In this case, I have used a Partridge Grub hook size 8
  • Silk: 70 denier white uni nylon
  • Underbody: Square lead wire.
  • Body: Embroidery silk yarn in olive
  • Legs: Grey dyed Ostrich herl
  • Rib: Monofilament line
  • Shell Back: Nymph skin coloured with a Pantone pen
  • ‘Fishin’ Glue or super glue.
