Jiggy The Sandeel

Talking about classic saltwaterflies the fly Clousers Minnow has to be in the top-three, closely followed up the Jiggy. Two of the biggest profiles in saltwater flyfishing and -tying, Bob Clouser and Bob Popovich have created these two patterns many years ago - but they still are some of the most popular and effective patterns today. While Clouser uses a straight shank hook for his Clousers, Popovich prefer sometimes to bend the shank a bit for giving the bendback fly a better flow in the water. In this video the skilled Danish flyfisher, guide and flytyer Jesper Lindquist Andersen uses the Ahrex Shrimp for his upside-down version of the Jiggy, but in an "upgraded" version with some flatwing hackles for creating his own version; Jiggy The Sandeel.

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.
