Fish Tales customers will see more and more jig style flies in our bins as we restock and gear up for next season.
Many of these flies, inspired by competitive fly fishing and Euro/Czech/tight-line style nymphing, are becoming customer favourites – they are very effective.
We’ve had customers ask why they would want to use jig-style nymphs or jig-style leeches.
There are many reasons, but the simple answer is probably three fold:
Overall, our guides, staff and customers have been very impressed with jigged flies and are even preferring them over many of our traditional nymphs. Jigged nymphs worked particularly well this summer and fall as droppers too.
When you’re into the shop next, have a look in our bins and consider trying something new – maybe a new twist on an old fly like a jigged copper john or prince. Talk to our staff about tying your own flies on jig hooks, too – we are loving tying flies like the perdigon – a sleek, heavy and deadly fly you may want to give a try.
