Tactical Specialist Jig Nymph
Tactical Specialist Jig Nymph is a super-effective euro nymph pattern with tons of ‘movement’ in the water. This is your choice of fly for smart and difficult-to-catch fish, where the fly has to sink well, but also appear alive. This pattern works excellent at the beginning of the season. It is also a fantastic fly for dead drifting. Jig it behind the big rocks and in deep pools. Also great as a point fly.
Tied on a barbless, jig-type hook with a tungsten bead to give extra weight to the fly.
Comes in two hook sizes: #12 & #14.
How to use them:
- use long and sensitive rod, size 2-4 wt, 10′ to 11′ long
- where the regulations allow, fish with two nymphs at the time on a thin leader (Czech type of leader)
- place the heavy nymph on top and smaller (lighter) on a dropper
- droppers should be maximum 10-15 cm (4”-6”) long and the distance between flies approximately 50 cm (20”)
