The Bosnian Shrimp Selection.
Shrimps (or Gammarus, or Scuds) are tried and tested all over Eastern Europe and also work well in UK rivers - especially in the early part of the season (i.e. March & April).
Gammarus shrimps are found in virtually every river in the UK (and Europe) and are present all year round - just turn over the nearest rock when you are next on the water and take a look. They make up about 90% of the trouts annual diet. Our Bosnian Shrimps are all tied on chemically sharpened Japanese Gamakatsu C12 barbless hooks in size 14.
We are supplying 4 each of the above shrimps (16 in total) for only £30 - these shrimps are usually £2.50 each, so our selection is a massive saving and all of the shrimps are very effective in UK rivers (and stillwaters).
A few more detail on each of the shrimps:
Olive Hot-Spot Shrimp - These Scuds are tied on Size 14 scud/shrimp hook Gamakatsu C12-B and are weighted with Lead-free wire, the body is shaped with Silicon and it has a red infection on the scuds back. Its legs are made with olive ostrich herl. The shellbacks are created with Raidzap Flex. This selection includes 4 x size 14's.
Infected Bosnian Shrimp - The body is made from lead-free wire. This is a real natural imitation with a body weighted to get to those deepest part of the river. CdC antennas and legs imitate the real natural insect and with a Raidzap fluorescent orange hot-spot infection, it will provoke even the pickiest of fish. The body and CdC are secured with tungsten wire. This selection includes 4 x size 14's.
Pink Shrimp - These pink scuds are tied on Gamakatsu hooks c12-b curved and shaped especially for scud and shrimps. The body is weighted with lead-free wire 0.20 mm. We all know that shrimps have a bump on their back so we included an infection/egg inside, just like the natural. For the body, we used silicon line and fluorescent pink Ostrich herl. Once covered in Raidzap Flex UV resin it makes a perfect imitation of the natural shrimp in nature. This selection includes 4 x size 14's.
Lime Hot-Spot Shrimp - As we made some scuds with ostrich and CdC legs we had to also tie some scuds with dubbing, We used a mixture of some of our favourite dubbing (Hares Ear, Pine Squirrel, Ice UV and Angel's hair). All tied on a size 14 hook Gamakatsu c12-b weighted with lead-free wire. As with the rest of our scuds, we added a lime green stomach infection on this scud too. This selection includes 4 x size 14's.
