In this video, Jay Nicholas ties a Black Seeker Jig Nymph.
Popular with the trout in New Zealand, this European style nymph pattern would work anywhere trout live. With a coq de leon tail, ribbed body, and a hot-spot collar, these flies are easy to tie and very effective for catching fish. With different color bodies, beads, and hot-spot collars, this fly could be tied in many different combinations.
Brown, Olive, and Black are basic color themes that are sure to be attractive to trout wherever you might fish – this Black Seeker jigged nymph rounds out the meal with a near-black, slender nymph that features a UV Shrimp Pink hot spot of Ice Dub.
Best wishes always, JN
