Thread: Mourne Shrimp

  1. #1

    Default Mourne Shrimp

    I got this from the ĎReportsí section of an old T&S. Apparently this took the mourne by storm at some point in the 1990s. The back should be White Raffia, but I donít have any of that, so itís lacewing..

    I can certainly see that still working very well especially as so many salmon are hooked by trout/grayling anglers on Czech nymphs with similar looking backs. Itís almost a cross over between those and salmon shrimp flies.

    Very nice, GK👍
    Just a thought but have you tried it with some eyes just to finish its shrimpiness?

    Hi Gary

    I missed your question. I havenít tried it with eyes, but I think they would fit perfectly.

    After a couple of questions, I finally went through the T&Ss to find the picture of the pattern. I have some corrections.

    1. The river is wrong, the fly isnít from the Mourne but other rivers on the Foyle system are mentioned.

    2. I was way off on my dates. The issue was the Aug 1987 T&S and the feature describes success using the pattern in 1986😂.

    I did get the system right though


    For reference:
