Jig Tailwater Sow Bug

Sow + Jig = Fish

If you are familiar with Lance's Tailwater Sow Bug, you already know that it is a staple across the western US, and has caught fish in many places.  This is essentially the same pattern, but designed to accommodate a jig hook and a large bead for Euro nymphing.  Watch the video as Lance shows us how to tie this simple bug.
