Yellow Shrimp was tied by Irish fly fishing instructor and guide and Salmonfly.Net contributing fly tyer, Stevie Munn. Although it was tied for Atlantic Salmon, it is one of those flies that could easily cross over as a Steelhead fly.

Stevie's Notes: "A very good fly for both salmon and dollaghan especially when used as a dropper. "
