Jig Nymphs

The cheapest jig nymphs in Australia from TroutFlies 

Lead ball weighted jig flies started being used approximately 25 years ago, and quickly became popular due to their sturdiness and effectiveness for trout fishing. When fishing in deeper waters you may find that your usual fly fishing jig is less effective than using nymphs. TroutFlies jig nymphs sink below the surface to where the trout are. As Australia’s leading online shop for fly fishing gear, we have an extensive range of jig nymphs for sale for both fresh and saltwater fly fishing. 

High quality jig nymphs 

A good jig fly for trout fishing can be the difference between success and frustration, and at TroutFlies we have years of experience in fly tying on jig hooks. Our realistic flies can come pre-tied with the right hook, ready to use straight out of the box in a variety of sizes, so whatever size hook you need, we have it. Don’t be fooled by our low prices, we make sure to sell only the best quality fishing products. All of our products are tried and tested since we use these flies ourselves on most days of the week in our guiding business. We promise that whether it’s a bead head fly or a competition signature fly, you will be 100% satisfied with the quality of our products or we will refund your money. 

Fly fishing products for domestic or overseas customers 

From fly fishing jig heads to tungsten bead flies, all of our products are able to be shipped all over the world. Within Australia, items are sent by Australia Post which often takes 5-7 working days after despatch, depending on where you live. International orders are individually quoted and times can vary. Because we understand you might need a definite date for your jig nymphs to arrive by, we encourage you to get in contact with us if you are planning a fishing trip or need something as soon as possible. Please note we can arrange express postage for you — so get in touch either by phone or online today!

History of the Jig Nymph 

Jigs flies, with a compact lead ball on the hook, began to be used approximately 25 years ago on the Traun River in Austria, where local fishing rules allowed the use of only one fly. In May 1988, Mr. Karel Holub brought some weighted jig nymphs to the Czech Republic for world champion Slavoj Svoboda, who used them with great success in the National Selection competition on the Vltava River in Vyssi Brod. Subsequently, Mr. Klima started to produce jigs flies for Rudi Heger, and in 1990 Mr. Jan Siman started to sell lead-weighted jig nymphs in the Czech Republic. At that time, VMC jig hooks with a 90 degree bend were available in the Czech market. Soon after our success with these jig-nymphs in the World Championships, they weroe banned in FIPS-Mou events. Several years later in 2001, a change in FIPS-Mou rules allowed the use of one bead with a maximum diameter of 4 mm, and Czechs continued to fish with jigs.

Right before the 2004 World Championship in Slovakia, a new explanation of the rules stated that a bead is permitted but without permanent fixture to the hook. The Czech team was in a critical situation because they had practiced the entire week before the Championship with classic jig nymphs. Team members Jaromir Sram and Daniel Scvrcek along with team captain Jiri Klima decided to remove the lead ball from Knapek jig hooks, and replace it with a tungsten bead. They then called Mr. Jindrich Knapek and asked him if he had any hooks available without lead. Mr. Svrcek’s girlfriend brought some of these semi-complete gold coloured jigs, with a 45 degree angle in sizes 14 and 16, to the competition. Combined with the tungsten bead, these new jigs were very successful, and this trick is still widely used. Mr. Knapek started to produce this new design in summer 2004, followed by Mr. Skalka in 2005 Mr. Hanak in 2006, and the Czech Fasso company in 2008.

Currently these jig hooks with a 45 degree angle are often used for short nymphing as the point fly, and in the Czech modification of French nymphing with a very long leader of 6 – 9 m that can be tapered or linear. A strike indicator should be included in this long leader to better identify fish takes. These new jigs are different than classic gold heads because the hook point is turned toward the bottom during drifting.
