Junction Shrimp Tube Salmon Fly

The Junction Shrimp is an excellent fly to have in you fly box. It fishes really well in fading light or coloured water. I've found its also a great fly to try when the fish have seen all the usual suspects going over their heads. Something different can often induce a take.
