Beaded shrimps!

Based loosely on the "Crazy Charlie" I've tied up a number of these little critters for my saltwater trips down in the harbour off the sandbanks. All tied on a Gamakatsu saltwater 2/0 hooks, I debarb the hook point then slide three glass beads down the shaft & secure behind the last bead, then add either a single small clump of white, pink, tan or olive bucktail in front of them. Add a couple of short strands of matching FFF Krinkle flash and I'm ready to fish. Had a couple of tiny sole and flatheads last week on this simple shrimp pattern. Now all I need is a Spotted grunter on them and I'll be happy!
