Do Fly Fishing Jig Hooks Work Better and Other Thoughts on Euro Nymphing

Flies tied on jig hooks have unique characteristics that lead to better performance. Riding hook point up is not on our list as one of these.

We do think that jig hooks have several unique characteristics that make them especially effective when used in a Euro Nymphing setup. We also think these characteristics make them great for fishing with a bobber or under a dry fly. We are less and less convinced, however, that the “hook point up” orientation is one of the benefits unique to jig flies and Euro Nymphing.
