'DW Fly Fishing & Tying':
Pursuing the UK's wild trout and grayling with the fly
Dave,I love shrimps, or scud as the Americans call them. This one looks great.On my French chalk stream, thay are ib biblical proportions, and a well tied scud will move a fish several feet, when feeding.I have one tied in my site flyfishfrance.blogspot.com. tied this summer, that is a close as I can get to natural.I will try your little loop nymph, what size have you tried? Is the last one tied and covered with varnish or?
Ricky,I'll check out your shrimp - always intersted to see the varaiations in patterns and approack to tying.As for the loop nymphs, I carry them in #18, 20, 21, 22.None of the loop winga are in varnish - that is the water surrounding the nymph - the loop seems to shroud the fly in water. I am sure this is part of its success.~D
