Hanging out with Friends - Bass & Bugs - April 2014

Jimmy D’s River Bugs, owned and operated by Jim DeZurik (Minnesota based angler / fly tyer with 50 years of experience), provides custom fly tying for all anglers looking to catch fish and enjoy themselves on both lakes and rivers. When you come to me, you can choose from my stock items (available in multiple colors) or let me tie one of your favorite jigs. Jimmy D’s River Bugs offers a variety of fish-catching lures, including Hair, Feather, Rabbit and Marabou Jigs, Swim Jigs, Spinner Baits, Pan Fish Jigs and so much more.

I specialize in tying jigs to catch Small and Large Mouth Bass, Walleyes, Northern Pike and Pan Fish. River Bug Hair jigs feature the usage of hair, feathers and silicone skirts. All of the materials used are of the highest quality and provide a natural life-like breathing action when pulled through the water. Paints used are oven cured powder paint and are available in a multitude of colors. Hook eyelets are always free of paint so you can start fishin’ instead of pickin’. I tie to please!

Northern Pike Streamers


Click photo to enlarge


Click photo to enlarge

My son Steve wanted something to fish big Northerns in shallow water bays in early Spring. With his insipration, I made some-up for him to try. It sinks very slow, flat, and horizontally, unlike the fall of a jig. It remains in line of sight for a long time. The slightest "twitch" and hold on.

When he lost the last streamer on a huge fish he said "I would have given $25.00 for another one!" - Jimmy D.

Weighted Northern Pike Streamer

I use a big heavy-nasty black nickel Premium 5/0 hook. Under the dressing I have wound mutiple layers of lead wire for added weight. Once the feathers have soaked up water, the streamer is heavy enough to use a medium to heavy spinning rod.

Unweighted Northern Pike Streamer
for Fly Rods

I use a light wire black nickel Premium 5/0 hook. No lead wire. Dressing is the same as the weighted version. Any game fish will "hone" in on this baby; it appeals to all! A big easy meal.

Minnesota's Traditional
Black Bear Jig

This time honored jig is what the 'old timers' (even older than I) swore by. It is a "no frills" jig - just hook and hair. Black round head. A super tough jig with a look that only Black Bear hair can provide. I am using a strong but bendable hook to help you if you snag-up. I have tried to stick with the original... a step back in time jig.

New for 2013

This jig was developed in the summer of 2012. Excellent results, lots of fish and almost indestructable. The Rabbit fur adds so much on the body and tail. I use a mustad premium black nickel ultra point hook. I have opted for a light wire hook because of the much better hooking %. Don't let the word "light" mislead you, it's plenty strong. Small and large mouth bass were the sought after fish, but a suprising number of walleyes took a liking to it.

As always, the silicone skirts are tied on and cemented. No need to buy tails for these. "Just unhook 'em and throw it back out there!"

Introducing "Scruffy" 2012
2014 Hook Upgrade

Scruffy is a very slow drop jig. It is, by design and type of hair used, intended to "find" the bottom rather than hit it. With Scruffy you can go up in weight for casting distance and control and not lose the slower drop. It looks like a little "mouse" in the water - very soft - something like marabou.

Quality Note

*All products featuring Silicone (Rubber) Skirts.*
The Silicione is tied in place. I don't use "rubber bands." Mine are tied, knotted and cemented onto the hooks. They will not deteriorate or come off when you boat a fish.
I put them on, to stay on! - - Thank you, - JIMMY D
