Tying a Red Devil Shrimp Salmon Fly by Davie McPhail

Today, Davie takes us through a combination of two flies to create a unique pattern. He uses two local patterns, The Ayrshire Red Shrimp and the Red Devil. The Ayrshire Red Shrimp is a highly recommended Salmon fly to use on all Ayrshire Rivers. They've also seen great popularity in Ireland as well. The other pattern is the Red Devil, which is a pattern designed by Davie himself. His design was intended for fishing the River Doon and other local Ayrshire Rivers. Both of these flies are deadly over the Summer and Autumn months, but combining them both as one fly, you will see even greater results! Get a few tied and get to the river when they're in spate!

All of the materials needed to tie this fly are available from Glasgow Angling Centre as listed below, but as always, if you need any help finding materials or substitutes then we'll be happy to help. Time to tie a Red Devil Shrimp Salmon Fly, with the guidance of Davie McPhail.
