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.

Was out on the river yesterday and action was very slow. Put on the black version of this fly and caught 8 fish in a matter of 20 minutes. One of which was 4.5lbs. Raising the rod tip retrieve was the key to success
Used this jig up in Blue Ridge, GA and caught multiple small rainbows and a crappie (with chartreuse). Very effective and easy to fish. Can't wait to go back after the stock and land a big fish.
Fantastic streamer. The first time in the water it caught a nice brown. Definitely a great fly. Top quality.
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!!
