Tying Instructions: This shrimp accurately matches the Gammarus sp. which are very common in British waters. It is leaded with flat lead and at size 10 will get down to those fish that won't move far for food when it's cold. I watched Paul Procter tie this pattern and the British Fly Fair - he included an orange -barred hot spot - just like the parasite the Gammarus will sometimes be carrying. This offers an alternative to the pink version of the pink version of this fly - also on the forum.
