Freshwater Shrimps are readily available trout food throughout the season. Most of the lakes and still waters have an abundant freshwater shrimp population living in the shallow areas of a lake in amongst the bottom vegetation. Vegetation and weedy areas act as both protection from predatory fish, and a food source for shrimp.
Czech / Polish nymphs fly patterns are tied to imitate caddis larvae and Gammarus. Hence, they are in a wide range of colours; including green, brown and grey. The Czech fishing method requires fishing flies that will sink quickly which is why these patterns are heavy and slim.
Flies tied upon request
We have hidden 32 more fishing flies available upon request within our fly fishing library. If you are interested in any designs, we will happily consider tying them for you. Either register your interest, or send us a message with the pattern and hook sizes you would like the flies tied to.
