About the Olive Shrimp Trout Fly
The Olive Shrimp was created for use on a very weedy corner of Fernworthy Reservoir, Dartmoor.
Weedy areas can provide cover and habitat for a variety of aquatic insects and other small invertebrates that can be an important food source for fish, and imitating these types of prey can be a good way to attract the attention of predatory fish.
