Stevie's Notes: ...A fly with a simply stunning history that has worked all over Ireland. It is one of the great all-rounderís and will work equally as well on low clear waters early in the season to colored rivers later in the year. ... A really versatile shrimp fly that all Atlantic salmon anglers should have in their fly box.
