Shrimp Patterns and Ray's Flies

A kind fly fisherman and tyer named Paul Matthews gave me one of his own Ken Abrames-style General Practitioner flies as well as a beautiful and sparse Ray's Fly.

The top four flies are variation on the General Practitioner, the three bottom are Ray's Flies.

Top fly is Paul's

Next is my copy of Pauls, but with the following variations: webby body hackle, cock neck hackle in place of golden pheasant body feather (rear support), small pillow of fire orange seal.

Third down is supposed to be a grass shrimp. It uses two jungle cock eyes rearward, a silver bodi-braid body, green and blue webby hackle body, and two dee-style turkey strip wings.

I'm glad you found a use for that memo of yours...i'm still looking.

I'd like to harness its energry using fire if possible.
