This pattern came from the fine book by Peter O'Reilly, Trout & Salmon Flies of Ireland. He writes that this fly was originally devised by Peter Wolshenholme and Michael Brown for the Brandon River. There intent was to match the natural shrimp as much as possible. This fly can be weighted to get down deeper for early Spring fishing.
