'DW Fly Fishing & Tying':
Pursuing the UK's wild trout and grayling with the fly
Thursday, 27 November 2008
Since colder, wetter weather seems to be creeping upon us (could we actually be faced with a cold winter this year?), grayling are starting to shoal up in deeper water. This calls for heavier, leaded flies - some of may favourites being gammarus (shrimp) imitations.
The Pink Gammarus
Great for cold weather & clear water
The 'Parasite Gammarus'
Includes a 'hot-spot' imitating a parasite carrying shrimp
The 'natural gammarus'
All of these are given two layers of flat lead for ballast and are tied on #10 Kamasan B100 hooks.
