Generic Jig Nymph

Jig nymphs are nothing new to fly fishing, yet I've noticed that many are hesitant to take that initial plunge. During this video, I go over the tying procedures for a generic jig nymph, and then variations to enhance the pattern. Finally, the last section involves a discussion around fishing with this style of fly. As I mentioned in the video, don't be afraid to experiment and show your creativity when selecting materials to tie these nymphs!

Featured in this video are the J100BL jig hooks from Allen Fly Fishing; you can find these hooks and others at the following link:

Thanks for viewing this YouTube fly tying tutorial, and I encourage you to view my additional videos at the following website:

As mentioned in the video, I'd love to hear from you about your jig nymph variations or method(s) to use. Feel free to leave any additional questions/comments on this YouTube page, or you can email me:

***The fly tied during this video is a larger version of the "Tungsten Torpedo," a fly that fits the generic jig nymph mold perfectly.

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.
