The Red Tag Jig

The Red Tag Jig has to be one of my most successful river flies taking fish all around Europe and most rivers it has visited in the UK.

Being such a widely used pattern I always try to ‘tweek’ the tyings a bit, to offer something that little bit different. Here I have used a whole CDC feather for the body and hackle, I always try to incorporate CDC somewhere into my heavier fly patterns to give it that ‘life-like’ look. The CDC traps air when it’s lobbed into a run which could represent anything from a drown hatching insect or egg sacks.
