Thanks for taking the time Kev, a truely informative contribution to the forum :cool:

A fine looking tie but so far Ive only ever seen Ross tie them in a way which makes them look like they've already landed a couple of fish, the original Shabby Chic ;)

Very Good SBS Kev, the video sbs's are a great resource for all those that are new to fly tying.

I agree with Springer, I have seen some of Ross's Park shrimps, and they have that shabby chic look, that I have not seen from anybody else, who has tied them. Whether this makes a difference, I don't know :rolleyes:.

Watched the whole video through over breakfast this morning Kev. I've not yet seen the Park Shrimp in use here in Ireland but I'm sure there are those using it, and I've no doubt that it will take off here in the way that Allys and Cascades did.

Having received my magnifying lamp in the post over the weekend, and with my week's fishing in Scotland coming up next week, I'll be getting to the vice for the first time in six years. Your video tutorial couldn't have arrived at a better time.

Crispin R.,

yer jokin about not seein the Park Shrimp used in Ireland right?:eek::eek::eek::eek: A lot of lads fishing the Nore use it. Use it myself on tubes on the Ballisodare early season and on standard hooks on the Mourne later on too. I think the boys on the Suir and Blackwater use them too but its not really my patch.

park shrimp

very good video - This is the best fly for Salmon and Sea Trout i have ever tied on in 40 years !!! It is deadly for Sea Trout in daytime spates and will take them at night.

PBK,

I really enjoyed the video, even though I was watching it at work (ssssshh!!) on a PC with no sound.

I think I've picked up a few tips in the way you do your hackles, which will hopefully reduce my head size on future ties.


Thanks again.
