The shrimp eyes are beads melted onto mono-filament line. The body casing is created using epoxy. Shrimp swim backwards so that explains the orientation.
I also threw together my first clouser. I call him "The Brown-noser." I gave it a brown back and white belly with some flash and a small amount of red deer hair in between.
Here is a quick video showing the conditions on the surf. It was a lot of fun jumping in the waves and I caught my first black drum.... It was just a pup, but still :)
