This week's Fly Friday is from PRO-Team member Phillippa Hake...
This has to be one of my favourite jig patterns. It's a pattern that is east enough to tie and the fish just love them.
I tend to fish this patten either paired up with 1 or two other nymphs when fishing a French leader.
This pattern has been very highly effective, especially during the winter months and in the early days of the trout season.
All in all its a great river pattern, one which I'm never without when I'm fishing.
