Shrimps will be on the menu again at this week’s fly tying class, staged by Inverness Angling Club in Hilton Community Centre on Thursdays from 7 to 8.30 pm. But this week tyers will concentrate their efforts on Ally’s Shrimp, the highly successful salmon fly designed and developed by well known angling instructor Ally Gowans of Pitlochry. The pattern is: Tail: hot orange bucktail (with Krystal hair if desired). Body: half red and half black floss silk with medium oval tinsel rib. Underwing: grey squirrel top and bottom. Overwing: bunch of GP tippets. Collar hackle: hot orange. Head: red thread or varnish.
