The Story

Fish love grubs and larvae—The Tactical Sob-Czech fly pattern is a general attractor that has the profile of grubs, larva, and wide body mayflies. The colored hot collar and flash creates an interest in fish looking for food. The tungsten slotted bead keeps it down deep and the jig hook keeps the hook point off the bottom. The spikey dubbing gives it lifelike movement.


Sizes: 14, 16, 18.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Getting deep This nymph is great for getting deep without adding additional weight to your line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable-had double digit fish on one fly. I fish Southern MN streams and I used this as part of a 2 nymph rig. It cuts through the water column so well and does not snag on the bottom with the jig hook. Very fun to fish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast Water Killer I use this at a fast moving little feeder creek into the main stream and it always catches trout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fishing the SOB Czech on the West Branch Delaware Spent 4 days fishing the West Branch Delaware River and hooked up with a big wild Brown using a #16 SOB Ginger Czech grub, what a fight on a great fly on a 4wt 10' Clearwater Classic rigged for Czech (Euro) Nymphing.
