About the Sparkle Shrimp Trout Fly
I always have a selection of shrimps in my fly box in a variety of colours and sizes. These can vary from a very small golden olivey yellow to large slate grey to almost black ones. They take on an amazing range of colours according to age, condition etc. They are absolutely deadly in all types of water at any time of year for both Trout and Grayling. No fancy fishing techniques are required just standard nymphing methods, most effective when twitched round weeded areas. It is also very useful as a stalking pattern for specimen fish on small waters. I have lost count of the number of times this fly has saved me from a fishless day.
