Tungsten Jig Bugger
Tungsten mini streamer for a high sink rate with marabou for excellent movement.
- Additional information
There’s no question that the Woolly Bugger is one of the most storied and effective flies an angler can possess. It’s why rows upon rows of fly boxes are devoted to it. It’s hard to imagine a way to make this pattern better, but the tungsten jig bugger manages to do just that! A stripping retrieve is usually the way to fish buggers, but with the jig hook it’s possible to incorporate new strategies into your arsenal! This fly works great in slow, deep water when we want our flies to be on the bottom and spend the most amount of time possible in the fish zone. After letting the jig bugger sink, give it the usual strip or two followed by a raise of the rod tip. This will give it extra upward motion to go along with the swimming pattern that imitates baitfish or crayfish.
Drift this mini streamer under an indicator or strip slowly as you would with other streamers. Tungsten beads are highly sought after for nymphing enthusiasts for it’s heavier weight and ability to drive nymphs down to the bottom quickly. Coupled with the barbless jig hook, these tungsten beaded flies are a deadly fly combo.

I ordered a bunch of flies and shared them with my sons and the quality is excellent. I was very impressed with how fast my order was fulfilled and will be ordering more very soon.
In all sized this little bugger pulls in the fish. I’m super impressed with its versatility. Keep up the great work, I’ll be back for more!!
Ordered a bunch of flies from them and the quality is phenomenal. They did mess up my order and forgot to send me something, but they made it right and then some, so I will be buying all my flies from them from now on. Great customer service staff. Nate if you are reading this you are a good guy.
The Tungsten Jig Buggers were shipped the day I ordered. They were just like they were advertised. Well tied and in assorted sizes and colors. I truly enjoy doing business with the Fly Crate.
Always enjoy fishing the Jig Bugger. Truly does
catch a variety of fish. I work it near bottom in
slower sections of streams near overhangs or
deeper pools. Quite a bit of action in this pattern so even subtle changes are enough to trigger a response. Sz 12 (ea. color) all I’ve been using. Considering Sz 14 as well. Panfish, smallies, and trout all go for this bugger. As always with The Fly Crate…..their knowledge and customer satisfaction is incredible.
