Stefano Baggi - Italian Nymphs

Regular price £25.00

 

Stefano Baggi, is 24 and was born and bred in Italy on the banks of the River Oglio (a mountain tributary of the mighty Po River). Stefano started fishing when he was only a child. Fly tying for him is a continuous experiment, he especially loves tying (and fishing) nymphs, taking his inspiration from the past and sprinkling it with some creativity. His nymphs are absolutely deadly on his local rivers and he has an enviable reputation among Italian anglers for effective and durable nymphs.

All of his flies are tested on his local rivers and streams and are great for both Trout and Grayling. Stefano's local rivers include:

  • River Oglio - Where you can find Marble Trout, Brown Trout, Grayling and Lake Trout.
  • River Sesia and Mastallone - In the lovely Valsesia (Piedmont), famous for big Marble, Rainbow and Brown Trout.
  • River Adda and Chiese - famous for big and stunning Grayling

His flies are especially effective on rivers where you need to get down deep quickly. So they will be invaluable on some of the deeper and faster flowing rivers here in the UK.

Here we present the Stefano Baggi Italian Nymphs Signature Selection:

Javi

Javi

The Javi are known as very good tungsten bodies, heavier than the normal tungsten beads. This is a must have for all those deep holes, where all the larger resident fish feed. Often revealing very big trout where you didn't think they existed!

  • Body: Black Thread
  • Rib: Silver Medium Wire

    This selection includes 2 of these nymphs in size 14.

    PettiRosso

    PettiRosso

    Born as a fantastic Wet Fly,it has been proven as a deadly pattern imitating emerging nymphs. In the creeks the catch ratio is embarrassing! This is because materials are very life-like, and if a fish is feeding could not refuse it. This nymph is deadly from March through to September.

    • Tail: Red Rooster fibers
    • Body: CdC/Squirrel Blend
    • Hackle: English Partridge feather
    • Thorax: Rusty Brown dubbing
    • Bead: 2.8 mm Gold

      This selection includes 2 of these nymphs in size 14.

      Spanish Flag Perdigon

      Spanish Flag Perdigon

      "This fly was born as a joke! I am not kidding you, I wanted to bring the colours of a flag into a dressing, I tried it and the fish went mad!" - Stefano Baggi, July 2018

      This perdigon is tied on wide gape Jig Hook size 14 with a silver nickle tungsten slotted bead, ideal for all the conditions - all around the world.

      • Tail: Dyed Red Rooster
      • Body: Yellow thread ribbed with flashabou
      • Thorax: Red flashabou & black waterproof marker
      • Finish: UV Glue
      • Bead: 3mm
      • Hook: Wizard J-3 Wide-Gape Size 14

        PT Reflex Copper Jig

        PT Reflex Copper

        The original dressing comes from Frank Sawyer, this is basically a pheasant tail developed for the competition scene. The jig hook is a very good choice, you can fish deeper having minor loses of flies and also catching fish in the upper part of the mouth. This is a very good nymph on both Trout and Grayling.

        • Tail: Red Rooster
        • Body: Pheasant Tail fibres
        • Rib: 0.2 mm Copper Wire
        • Thorax: Spectra Dubbing (Dark Peacock)
        • Neck: Red Floss
        • Bead: 3mm Copper Disco Bead
        • Hook: Wizard J-3 Wide-Gape Size 14

          This selection includes 2 of these nymphs in size 14.

          Spectra Orange Hot-Spot

          Spectra-Spot Hare

          I was searching an alternative to the classic GRHE,and finally I found an excellent solution, when the fly is underwater, the spectra orange dubbing attracts fish, the neck of squirrel and CdC creates a bubble, adding to its movement.

          • Tail: Cream Rooster
          • Body: Hare Dubbing
          • Rib: 0.14 mm Golden Wire
          • Thorax: Spectra Orange Dub
          • Neck: CdC/Squirrel Blend
          • Bead: Tungsten Slotted 3mm Gold
          • Hook: Wizard J-2 Competition Size 14

          This selection includes 2 of these nymphs in size 14.
