Summer Shrimp Flies

 

A few shrimp tube flies for summer salmon fishing

by John Gray

 

Here are a few shrimp flies, dressed on slim stainless steel needle tubes, 15 mm in length and 1.8mm diameter. They are intended for salmon fishing throughout the summer months. They are very simply dressed, leaving the slim silver tubes undressed. Colours may easily be varied to suit taste and local circumstance.
