Here we have a unique Early Season Jig Selection for you from our man in Bosnia. These early season nymphs are specifically chosen to give you the widest possible choice, no matter which river conditions you face - heavier nymphs for the higher water levels, sparsely tied nymphs for the clearer waters and lower flows.
These flies will work in any conditions and any style of fishing - but they excel in the early season at any of the nymphing disciplines (Long Line, Euro, French, Spanish etc).
Here we present our Bosnian Early Season Jig Selection, comprising five different patterns:
- Red-Neck Quill Jig - weighs 0.24g
- The Sputnik Jig - weighs 0.24g
- Peacock Quill Jig - weighs 0.23g
- March Brown Jig - weighs 0.25g
- Colonel Mustard Jig - weighs 0.34g
These nymphs look super 'fishy' the quality has to be seen to be believed - if you click on any image or link in this email you can see for yourself, as we've got some really nice close up images on the site.
Every so often, we need a fly (or flies) we can rely on - well here they are, the Bosnian Early Season Jig Selection:
Jigs included in our selection are:
Red-Neck Quill Jig
One of the most successful nymphs on any water is the red-neck pheasant tail nymph. This variant is tied with a stripped peacock quill body and Coq de Leon tail. The hackle is dubbed with squirrel and then a hot-spot created with orange rabbit dubbing. Topped off with a 3mm copper coloured tungsten bead and all attached to a size 14 Ahrex jig hook. This nymph weighs in at 0.24g. Our selection contains 2 of these stunning nymphs.
The Sputnik Jig
"This nymph has been my saviour on many occasions!"; K.H. 2022. Tied on a size 18 barbless Ahrex jig hook, with a 3.0mm silver tungsten bead. This is the first fly I tie on when I'm fishing slow water. The body of this nymph is wrapped in Veevus Golden Tinsel with a peacock herl thorax and brown rooster hackle. This nymph weighs in at 0.24g. Our selection contains 2 of these stunning nymphs.
March Brown Jig
Taking the March Brown nymph just that one step further with this stunning creation. Tied on a long shank Ahrex barbless jig hook with a dark tan goose biot body and tail, all secured with black UV resin to form an imitative hot-spot. The thorax dubbing is a special mix of squirrel, hare's ear, ice UV and olive rabbit hair. Topped off with a 3.0mm silver slotted tungsten bead - to help it fish upside down. Our selection contains 2 of these stunning nymphs.
Colonel Mustard Jig
Ok, you get to the river and the water is high, fast and coloured, what do you do? Fish are on the bottom and you need to get your fly down quick to have any chance at all. Tied on a wide gape Ahrex jig hook with a 3.0mm Orange tungsten. The body is made from light olive goose biots secured with UV resin, the thorax is dubbed with a mixture of various coloured ice UV. Our selection contains 2 of these stunning nymphs.
Peacock Quill Jig
This is one of those flies which you need to see 'up close', it really deserves to be framed, rather than fished. With a hint of blue running throughout the fly, this will be ideal for the cleared waters. Tied with a Veevus flat-braid rainbow collar and ice blue flash dubbing on an Ahrex size 14 barbless jig hook. All topped off with a 3.0mm copper coloured tungsten bead. Our selection contains 2 of these stunning nymphs.
The above price includes 10 hand-tied Early Season Jig Nymphs direct from the vice of our man in Bosnia, supplied in our eco-friendly packaging.
