Duracell Jig

Curtis Fry - April, 2016

Ihaven't fished the duracell jig for more than a year or so, but it's quickly becoming one of my all-around go-to flies for Euro style nymphing as well as something to drop off of a big dry fly.

Originally created, near as I can tell from what I read online, by Craig McDonald, the Duracell has quickly become a favorite pattern among the Euro or Czech style nymphing crowd.

I'm very particular to Ice Dub and Hare'e Ice Dub, so when I saw this was created almost entirely from one of my favorite materials, I figured it had to be golden -- and it's been golden, no question.
