Jig Style Nymphs For Fly Fishing

Just a quick post today folks, introducing the first installment of a series of jig style nymphs for fishing in a tight-line or euro-nymph rig.  In the Olive Quill Body Jig video, I demonstrate how to tie a particular color scheme that is working very well at the moment.  I can only assume that the fly is being taken for either a Blue Winged Olive Nymph or a Caddis Larva.  Click either picture to be redirected to the video

These particular patterns are very productive fish catchers, and the sky is the limit in terms of what you can do in terms of what flies you can convert to jigs.  Stay tuned in the coming weeks as I unveil several different successful color combinations with the quills, as well as some jig conversions of several household nymph patterns.  Enjoy the video and happy tying.
