Winter Weather

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.

Dave,

Fine start to your blog. May it 'float' forever ;-)

Cheers,
Hans
