Fly Friday #120 Jig Pattern by Phillippa Hake

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. 

Materials:

Hook - Partridge SUJ jig #16

Thread - black or brown 8/0
