Fly of the Week: Jiggy Worm

Fly of the Week Jiggy Worm

Rainy’s really stepped up their game with the creation of the Jiggy Worm. A serious eye catcher to say the least. Tied similarly to a conventional flipping jig, the Jiggy Worm has a buggy look both bass and fly fishermen desire. This fly is simply a must for anyone who wishes to chase bass this summer.

Did you know we call a different fly to the spotlight every week? Check out last week's.

Swing it, strip it, or drift it, this fly does it all. Tied on a sturdy #1 60° jig hook with brass eyes, this fly has great action. The marabou and rubber leg mane gives the fly tons of movement, no spiny ray can resist. The tapered tail is tied with a unique chenille-like material that wiggles identical to a live worm. Due to the brass eyes, the hook rides point up, and free of all possible snags.

I was raised in the lettuce capital of the world Salinas, California with hunting and fishing running through my veins. I don't remember when I started fly fishing, but there are pictures of me stripping wolly buggers on Henry's Lake when I was 4 in my Snoopy life jacket. In California, I fished for every kind of bass, but my favorites are definitely striped and white bass. I am fortunate enough to spend every summer in the Yellowstone region where I get my trout fix for the year. I have worked 7 years in a few different fly shops in West Yellowstone, Montana and Last Chance, Idaho. I graduated from Colorado State University-Pueblo with a Bachelors of Science in Business Management in 2015 right before I moved up to Ponderay, Idaho where I began working for North 40 Outfitters. I love the area I currently live in and I'm always looking for more fishing or hunting partners. Stop by the Ponderay fly shop anytime and tell me of your latest fishing experience!
