Lavender Shrimp

In todays fly tying tutorial German Fly Tier Oliver Oelze is tying a really nice shrimp.

Body: Slf / Ice Dub, Easy shrimp eyes fluo hot orange, Whiting Spey Feather.

Head: Varnish

Lavender shrimp is a typical shrimp fly, the color and the open back makes it very lively in the water.
Perfect in spring and the colder months of the year. The spey feather on the head lies in the water like a
shell back on the fly, but plays more than solid backs.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
