I have tied a bunch of jighead flies and wanted to try them. After seeing them produce on the North Platte I was wanting to give them a try. I did have success early and then it got a little slow - but still managed a bunch of fish. Some things I noticed about the jig head flies - the snag up less, get tangled less (especially if you don't use a weight and use tungsten beads for the heads), barbless is awesome - no forceps needed!, they hurt just as much as a regular hook when you lodge one in your finger.
I hooked up right away. Many, many browns, from about 13 inches all the way to 5 inches. They were colored up - nothing too buttery, but good to see their spots. On the last hole by the construction, I landed the pretty brookie at the end. It was fiesty and went a good 13 inches. Beautiful white flanks on its fins - so cool looking and quite a surprise.
A couple of other observations - I still have a leak in my right wader below the knee, and I have to finally admit to neeing glasses to tie on anything smaller than size 14 fly. Ugh, I'm getting old.
