Speaking of the angler, how do you recommend your favorite prawn pattern be fished with maximum effectiveness?
How you fish a fly depends on the characteristics of the river or pool
and the water conditions. Ally’s Shrimps are made in a variety
of colours in addition to the original fly in order to make the pattern
more versatile and successful. I have several other patterns that use
the same form to further broaden my options. Mostly Ally’s Shrimps
are fished on a conventional swing choosing a line type to suit the conditions.
It does not seen to matter much about the depth, if fish are willing
to come to the top it can be fished only inches down with a full floating
line and conversely if conditions dictate that you scrape the bottom
they will take it deep. Sometimes working it in short pulls will illicit
a response better and in slow or still water it can be hand lined to
good effect. This fly has been remarkably successful fished in almost
any fashion and I guess that is why it is so popular.

The three examples of my patterns have been chosen because they have “Pacific Friendly” colours. If you would like to buy Ally's Shrimps see the fly sale page.
