    Default Shrimp on a tube

    A friend is going winter steelheading on the OP in a couple weeks. I modded an Irish shrimp and tied a few to send along with him.

    Let me know what you think:

    That looks great, if you have one try tying one with a purple hackle at the front but should work anyhow.
    Nicey tied

    Default Great tie Heero

    Great tie Heero.

    There is an interesting article in February Fly Fishing and Fly Tying featuring Irish shrimp style conehead tubes if anyone is interested in these sort of flies.

    A good article by Easky. There were some of these conehead flies tied by a forum member here back in Feb 2009, and I was surprised that this was not mentioned in the article to be honest.

    First attempt at coneheads

    thanks for the comments guys, adds a new dimension to shrimp patterns and something a little different to try out this season

    ...Neil, Owenmore let the cat out of the bag so to speak , as he said in the thread he was at a demo I was doing... I had said to the guys they were getting a sneak preview of the coneheads I was doing for an article... just forgot to say about not posting up any pixs

    Heero - nice looking shrimp and my only comment would be why not try a few with a cone like this one

    so much fishing, so little time

    Andrew,

    It is a great article, and sorry I wasn't aware that Owenmore had seen a sneak preview, as its not obvious from the post . Thats why I wondered how any link to this post wasn't mentioned, but now I know.

    I posted a reply to the original article, and agree thats it's a great addition to the way Shrimp patterns are tied.

    So now the cat is out of the bag, how did these flies perform for you ?

    Neil

    no worries Neil

    one of the other guys at the 'sneak preview' got 4 on the Dusky Currys above in a morning from a local spate river in August last year and I got a nice liced late Oct fish on the Wilky version . The Welsh guys who first tried them have had success on their local rivers since 08... as I said in the article its a Welsh - Irish collaboration
