Polar Shrimp

Uses

Primarily used when salmon have recently migrated from salt to fresh water, or for steelhead. Can be effective when river flows are turbid and you need a bright fly with more "presence."

Variations

Could be tied in chartreuse.

How to Fish

Traditional wet-fly swing. If the water temperature is below 52 degrees, consider using a sink-tip line with a 4-6 foot leader.
