Excellent jig nymph -
As my first foray into the barbless jig-style nymph, I was hoping to snag the bottom less and still manage to successfully trail a second fly behind the jig. This worked perfectly on my first trip out. This quill jig sinks quickly, hooks and holds well, and catches fish. I encountered cold, dirty water, and still managed a decent morning with this fly as my lead. Recommended!
Panfish slayer! -
I picked this fly up based on a recommendation by the Fishing manager Dan at my local (Arlington VA) Orvis store with the intent of using it as a dropper nymph under a dry fly for some blueline fishing around a lof of underwater logs. Having had some success with other dry-dropper rigs on panfish, I decided to give this one a go for a quick after-dinner trip to the local pond with my son last night. I tied this under a Royal Wulff and the panfish couldn't leave it alone! I was catching Largemouth Bass, assorted Bluegill, and Black Crappie one right after the other, including a double hookup Bluegill/Crappie on the dry/dropper. I'm headed back to the shop right now to pick up a couple more of these deadly little flies and I can't wait to try them out on trout and I'm hoping one of the carp cruising that same pond will grab hold of one.
