Stevie's Notes: The Orange and Gold Shrimp is another must have salmon fly, that has worked well for many anglers for many years. It is a marvelous fly in peaty stained water or in rivers that are carrying a hint of color in a fresh or on the drop after a flood. It works on both clean and resident fish and would be a good first choice fly to try on most rivers in Ireland.
