Umpqua Competition C400BL Jig Hook
The C400BL Jig hook is fast becoming one of our favorite nymph tying hooks. The C400BL is a great hook for czech nymphing flies or european nymphing rigs. Match the C400BL with the appropriately sized slotted tungsten bead
for a jig nymph that will bounce along the bottom without snagging up.
We use these jig flies in both czech nymph rigs and indicator nymphing rigs.
