Stefano Baggi - The Heavy Mob

Regular price £24.00

Now that Winter is finally making an appearance and the frosts are starting to become more regular, the Grayling will have started to shoal up in the deeper pockets. With the rivers generally higher than normal and the flow often stronger, you're going to need something a bit heavier if you want to target the Grayling in these conditions. Enter The Heavy Mob from Stefano Baggi, these Grayling (and Trout) nymphs are absolutely deadly on his local rivers in Italy, try them on yours!

All of his flies are tested on his local rivers and streams and are great for Grayling (and the odd trout). 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 Heavy Mob. All of these flies are tied on  Wizard J-2 Jig Hooks in size 10, topped off with 4.5mm Tungsten Beads.

These flies are incredibly heavy, weighing in at 0.9g each. 

Spectra Hare Jig

I was searching for 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: 0.2mm Golden Wire
  • Thorax: Spectra Orange Dub
  • Neck: CdC/Squirrel Blend
  • Bead: Tungsten Slotted 4.5mm Gold
  • Hook: Wizard J-2 Competition Jig Size 10

      This selection includes 2 of these nymphs in size 10.

      Red-Neck Pheasant Tail Jig

      This Jig is  the one of the most popular dressings among fly anglers in Europe, the Pheasant Tail has probably caught fish in every river of the world, simply a must have fly!
      • Tail: Brown Rooster
      • Body: Pheasant Tail Fibres Ribbed With 0.2 Copper Wire
      • Thorax: Spectra Peacock Dubbing
      • Bead: Tungsten Slotted 4.5mm Gold
      • Neck: Red Floss Covered With UV
      • Hook: Wizard J-2 Competition Jig Size 10

        This selection includes 2 of these nymphs in size 10.

        Orange Pheasant Tail Jig

        This is a variation of the Red-Neck Pheasant Tail (above), and it's better for stocked fish and waters which see a lot of angling pressure. I prefer it with metallic coloured varnish because it reflects a lot more the light underwater, triggering takes.

        • Tail: Brown Rooster
        • Body: Pheasant Tail Fibres Ribbed With 0.2 Copper Wire
        • Thorax: Spectra Purple Peacock Dubbing

        • Neck: Orange Floss Covered with UV
        • Hook: Wizard J-2 Competition Jig Size 10

          This selection includes 2 of these nymphs in size 10.

          Squirrel and White Jig

          Squirrel and White, the original dressing is made with hare but I think the squirrel mixed with CdC and Golden fibres is incredibly catchy due to its mobility and fluffiness.
          • Tail: Brown Rooster
          • Body: Squirrel/CdC/Golden Fibre Blend
          • Thorax: Hare With UV Angel Hair
          • Neck: Red Floss Covered With UV
          • Bead: Tungsten Slotted 4.5mm Gold
          • Hook: Wizard J-2 Competition Jig Size 10
