Jig’ish Sandeel

Up-side down flies can be super effective and especially for imitations of sandeels they can be a big hit. Sandeels use the tactic of fleeing from predatory fish by escaping into the sandy bottom and hide, this can be exploited by tying flies that turn upside-down and let them rest on the bottom and start with a jerk, this often triggers a hard take from the awaiting predator. We have had the skilled Dutch fly fisherman and fly tyer with a specialty in baitfish imitations Sander Zuidinga behind the vice and tie his offer on a sandeel imitation based on the classic Jiggy fly which precisely uses the up-side-down technique.

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.
