Tan Spey Shrimp

Fishing in shallow water can be tricky, difficult and frustrating... The fly often catches the bottom or snags, but here the solution can be upside down flies. Weighted correctly, you can make the fly turn with the hook tip upwards, and avoid some of the obstacles normal flies would get hold of. In this video, Morten "Coastfly" Hansen demonstrates his bid for an effective shrimp imitation: Tan Spey Shrimp, for coastal fishing for sea trout. The combination of a heavy-duty bead, the long living hackle fibers and the upward-facing hook make this fly super effective.

Hook: SA254 - Salt Jig
Weight: Spawn Slotted Football Bead, Shrimp Peach
Thread: White UTC
Rib: Monofilament nylon
Tail: STF Dubbing, Golden Honey and Whiting Spey hackle, tan
Eyes: Easy Shrimp Eyes, black
Body: STF Dubbing, Golden Honey and Whiting Spey hackle, tan

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.
