Disco Shrimps are a variant of the well-known Czech nymphs (which are weighted flies) tied on grub hooks to imitate freshwater shrimps/scuds. A typical characteristic of a Czech nymph fly is the slim profile (to allow it to sink quickly), a back covered with foil/latex and a mono rib.
Czech Nymph fishing is a style of nymph fishing practised by keeping in close contact with the flies at close range, generally in faster riffles (so you can get closer to the fish) just under the rod tip. In most cases, there is no fly line outside of the rod tip and a Czech indicator/8m leader is used. This gives you an enhanced feel for the flies as they are drifting along the river bed.
