Racing Gold UV Jig Perdigon
Racing Gold UV Jig Perdigon is a great Perdigon pattern tied on a Demmon Jig competition barbless hook. Tied in a creamy yellow color to resemble the small swimming blue-winged olive nymph and ribbed with UV ribbing Perdigon tinsel to enhance the visibility. These flies are really deadly in ginger clear waters!
The barbless jig hook minimizes snags and the tungsten bead gives it extra weight. The tail is tied using Coq de Leon feathers, which gives this fly more realistic look.
Racing Gold UV Jig Perdigon nymph comes in three hook sizes #14, #16 and #18.
