Pay Dirt - Nightmare
The very first time we fished the Pay Dirt, it crushed silver salmon in B.C. The Pay Dirt in this Nightmare color version will certainly get some folks excited that know the effectiveness of the Nightmare color scheme used on jigs for salmon and steelhead for years.
This traditional leech pattern is tied on a size 3 Alec Jackson salmon and steelhead hook. The fly features a rabbit strip wing for enticing movement, Krystal Flash and a schlappen collar that creates a perfect profile in the water without adding bulk. The Pay Dirt is sparse, easy to cast and down right deadly. A moderately sized brass bead helps get the fly in the zone and provides a good jigging action when stripped, salmon really like a jigging action!
