The Original Jock's Shrimp Salmon Fly

This is an absolute 'deadly beastie' if you dare to swim it near Atlantic salmon in the late Summer & Autumn waters. Over the last several years I've had many anglers after more & more of these due to their salmon harrasing abilities !!! This pattern is tied with Arctic fox in the tail & wing and schlappen hackles for movement turning this shrimp fly into a livebait when river water is added !! The above set which I tied this evening comprises of 3 X 7's, 3 X 9's & 3 X 11's (Partridge Salar doubles). These can be added to your armoury for a mere 35 GBP plus postage. Please do not buy and swim these if your looking for a quiet un-interupted day out on the river this fall ! Enough said.
