    RIO's Point Drake Green, Tungsten Bead Jig Nymph

    What we say:

    In recent years there has been a European wave of patterns and techniques. Among them we found the euro- nymphing style of flies tied on jig hooks to be a welcome addition to our fly selection. Jig hooks are designed to ride point up. This seems like pretty basic change to a classic nymphs design but makes all the difference in the world. When you�re fishing a deeply sunk nymph with a standard hook point down, it risks hanging up on the bottom more frequently. This not only interrupts your drift but can dull your hook points resulting in lost fish.The tungsten bead gets your fly into the zone quickly and keeps it there. It presents in a more natural horizontal position due to the jig style of hook, and when tied on with a loop knot can produce a very seductive natural motion in the water. Use this fly in any stream with populations of Green Drake Mayflies.
