Just like our Shrimp Shells these gammarus shells are precut for giving your fly a realistic and easy to tie look. Use a curved hook, add some weight, some dubbing and a rib and you are ready to tie a perfect gammarus imitation in no time – a true killer for both freshwater and saltwater fly fishing. We have discovered how important gammarus nymphs are for ex. Scandinavian coastal fishing for seatrout or sea run browns, so a gammarus pattern is a “must-have-in-the-box” pattern when hunting trouts everywhere.

Tie in weight underneath the hook.
Add "legs" in front and back, and tie in the nymphshell. Mount a rib and make a dubbing-body.
Fill up a thick and wooly body, fold the shell over the top on the fly and attach it with the rib and brush the body out.
The Pro Gammarus Nymph Shell comes in three differnet sizes; L, M and S. And available in the following colors.
