The inspiration for these Specialist Tungsten Jigs came from our existing Tungsten Nymph Selection - which are by far our best-selling nymphs for Grayling, and Trout. These patterns work exceptionally well using the Euro Nymphing style - try putting the size 12 on the dropper with the size 16 on the point in a really heavy flow - that way you can fish both Tungsten jigs close to the riverbed.
Each of the tungsten jig nymphs weighs as follows:
- Size 12 - 0.41g
- Size 14 - 0.28g
- Size 16 - 0.22g
These are our most popular Grayling Nymphs. The barbless Tungsten Jig Nymph Selection is a selection of 3 styles of tungsten jig nymphs, we supply two of each nymph in three sizes (12's, 14's & 16's), in total there are 18 nymphs supplied in our eco-friendly packaging. All of these nymphs are tied using barbless jig hooks, in sizes 12 to 16 using quality slotted tungsten beads.
Descriptions, links and photos of the nymphs can be found below:
Red-Neck Pheasant Tail - The best fly for the river? This fly probably accounts for more fish than any other flies I use. It represents a wide range of river nymphs and is ideal for both Trout & Grayling. Fished on its own or as a part of a duo (New Zealand Rig), this fly is deadly. These flies are tied with silver slotted tungsten beads (Size 12 - 4mm, size 14 - 3mm & Size 16 - 2mm). The selection contains two each of sizes 12, 14 & 16.
Olive Quill Nymph - This pattern is a darker olive version representing a Baetis nymph or any olive-coloured medium to small mayfly or caddis larva. These flies are tied with silver slotted tungsten beads (Size 12 - 4mm, size 14 - 3mm & Size 16 - 2mm). The selection contains two each of sizes 12, 14 & 16.
Hare's Ear Nymph - The Hare's Ear Nymph is a generic nymph in that it represents many mayfly and caddis nymphs and is often used as a searching pattern. Its shaggy appearance resembles many species of nymphs when they shed their skins or shucks as they progress into the next stage of their life. The more scruffy this fly is, the better it is at catching fish, and this one is pretty scruffy! These flies are tied with silver slotted tungsten beads (Size 12 - 4mm, size 14 - 3mm & Size 16 - 2mm). The selection contains two each of sizes 12, 14 & 16.
The above price includes 18 tungsten jig nymphs supplied in our eco-friendly packaging.
