The Lammas Shrimp Tube Fly

 

Step by Step tying of a Lammas Shrimp salmon needle tube fly

by John Gray

Below is a step-by-step tying sequence of the Lammas Shrimp salmon fly, in this instance a tube fly dressed on a fine stainless steel needle tube, although it may also be dressed on a hook or other tube. Dressed loosely in the Irish style, it is intended, as the name suggests, for late summer fishing. It accounted for a few salmon in September.
