    Where would the Park Shrimp Muddler be used? Bob fly on a loch? Seems a bit of a strange combo which might be why itís not readily available

    Deadly during low water river conditions fished on the bob with a small double or treble on the point.
    You need a stiff breeze to riffle the pool and can be fished upstream or downstream depending on the wind and water conditions. Fresh fish will roll over it, chase it, swirl at it and take it, sometimes leaping into the air and taking it on the way down. Exciting stuff.
    Vary your retrieve from slow figure of 8s to long pulls slow and fast until you find the magic formula and remember to hold your nerve and wait till the line tightens on you.
    I sometimes have fished a hitch on the tail and that often works as a combination too.
    But----------------
    you need the fish in the pools, fresher the better.
    Works best also on smaller Highland and Island river systems for some reason.
    It doesn't need to be the P. S. shrimp version, any old muddler will do the job.
    Also a top method on Highland loch systems such as Dionard for both salmon and sea trout.
    On one day 3 years ago my boat companion and myself had 9 salmon and also sea trout to 8lbs from that loch using a muddler. Fish occasionally also took the tail fly, usually a wee shrimpy type. Never failed most visits to that loch.

    Managed to find a source for the PS muddler in Neil at Caithness Quality Flies in Thurso.
    Ross MacDonald doesnt tie the muddler version and says he is taking a few months to tie his original PS as his wife is unwell at the moment.
    Neil has managed to tie them close enough to the photo above,
    Use as Keirstream suggests above and I like them on the Findhorn when conditions are favourable.
    A pic of my delivered order. Prices very reasonable.
