Tactical Specialist Nymph J03 BL
Tactical Specialist Nymph J03 is a perfect pattern to use for smart and difficult-to-catch fish. This is a fly with lots of “movement”. A very heavy pattern that, when in water, behaves like a rock will not be taken by a smart fish. This is where you need an insect “full of life”. Tied on a top-quality barbless hook with a tungsten bead for weight. Comes in two hook sizes: #12 & #14.
