Yesterday afternoon and this morning, i had to tie up some shrimp patterns of mine and some old ones. to go to north Wales, the badger shrimps are patterns i tied up some years back. and have worked well on a lot of waters, above is my ghost shrimp when in the water being worked it looks amazing. and the fish love it to have had Sewin / Salmon and Bass on this one.
Above is the Ginger shrimp, works well on clearing water or peaty water.
The red shrimp, take fish early and late in the season.

Been trying to tie up a few flies for myself, ready for the season which starts 1st April. can't wait to get on the river after those sewin, plus the bass are starting to show. my mate had a lovely fish of 11lb 12oz about 10days ago, when they are in numbers will be after them on a fly.
