Euro Jig Pheasant Tail

European nymphing is gaining in popularity here in the Estados Unidos, as it should. The techniques that have been used in France, Spain, Poland, and the Czech Republic deserve attention. They add a new perspective to nymph fishing and open up new opportunities on our home waters.

Bottom Tickler Tungsten Jig Fly

The Bottom Tickler Tungsten Jig Fly is a Czech-Eastern European style jig fly. This color scheme of tungsten jig is tremendously effective. Fish this fly as the bottom fly on a two fly rig, with a lighter nymph or soft hackle above it. I have had great luck with a small soft hackle on a dropper tag fished above this fly. Fish a larger heavier jig in faster or deeper water to get down faster.

Tying the Czeched Out Hare’s Ear

This soft hackled Hare’s Ear pattern, tied on a jig style hook, is effective and quick fly to tie. The bugginess from the hare’s ear dubbing combined with the pink “hot spot” thorax make it irresistible. I typically tie it in a size 14, but it could easily be tied up to a size 8 and down to a size 16. This fly looks great when the body color is changed to olive or black.
