I've been catching lots of fish on a copper headed light coloured GRHE that looks nothing like the nymphs that you see from kick sampling the river. So I wondered whether it is mimicking a parasited shrimp. I've tied it on a curved hook with the copper bead half way down the body. It catches fish, if anything better than the original. I've ordered some orange beads to see if they are better. I think it may also sit on its back in the river, with the hook point upwards as I don't seem to catch the bottom so much. I've seen nothing like this on an internet search of beaded shrimps/scuds, so is it new?
