Dear JIM,


A whole lot of people will like this 'shrimp'...


It's a 'speaking' colorcombo tooooooooo...purple, yellow and brown...."BESSY BELL" methink ?


psttttttttttttttttttttt in the whole of IRELAND (Ireland and North Ireland)...the FLIES still used today are simply SHRIMP flies...and of those a great percentage has 'vibrant' colors worked in (colorcombo are 'endless')...much peat stained water !!!




PS...when I was over as a guest in RYAN HOUSTON his house...we fished his beloved river nearby...and YOU couldn't even tell 'how' deep it was (one feet or 10 feet) hahahahaha

I like it, will enjoy your journey down shrimpy lane Jim. I often wonder why more grubs and such are not fished here. I may have to start a new trend
