The Thread Jig Head Fly is just about the easiest fly to tie. If you buy the unpainted jig head hooks, you can have a large variety of colors, painting the heads the color to match our threads.
- Hook: Jig Head 1/80, 1/100, 1/128
- Hook Sizes: 12, 14, 16
- Thread: UCT 70 or UNI-Thread 8/0 to match the color. Because you are only using thread you might want to use thicker threads UTC 140 or UNI-Thread 6/0, 3/0.
Because I paint my jig heads, I like to add an eye. As you build the body with your thread, build a tapered body.
