The jigging hook and the bead

By Skip Clement

Orvis/Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions and Montana Fly brings jigs into 2018

This two-step video tip from Orvis/Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions now saves a lot of time and produces a “mo betta” fly that can get down and deep fast… and it’s legit fly fishing.

Rigging a get down deep “right now” fly required a lure style jigging hook. Yes, I know, not really fly fishing for purests, but the striper lads on the big lakes in the Southeast use that set up exclusively, but now I’m saved.
