The Capilano Jig-A-Bugger Fly Recipe and Tying Video
There is no arguing the effectiveness of a twitching jig for Coho Salmon; if only there was a way to emulate the same action while fishing a fly....there is now!
Utilizing a small Ahrex Jig hook and a heavy tungsten bead, we can do the exact same thing anglers are doing with a gear setup with our fly rods. This is a heavily weighted fly that we typically fish on a fast-sinking type 7 sinking line because of the depth of the Canyon pools on the Capilano.
A short quick erratic strip is what I would start with. If that doesn’t work, slow it down and start increasing the length of the strip until those fish eat that little bugger!
