Apache Shrimp Description

The Apache Shrimp salmon fly was created by Garvagh fly dresser Albert Aktins. Albert owns and runs a tackle shop in the town and is well known right across the country. Albert had been fishing the Apache Shrimp with great success for a while before he unleased it on the Irish fishing population. The Apache Shrimp has been a firm favourite ever since.
