Brassie Jig

The Brassie is a long-lived pattern and has found a home in many fly boxes. I can remember using the brassie in a stillwater pond when I first started fly fishing. The pond didn't end up having any trout, but I did manage to find some rather large and hungry "wild" goldfish willing to try the fly. I've tied this one on a Jig hook and will be using the fly in the small Ontario creeks this spring. For the thorax, feel free to use peacock herl or any color of peacock dubbing. You can also try out some different colors of wire, black and red have worked quite well for me in the past.

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
