A better way to add weight to your flies
The Umpqua Jig Bomb Drop Bead are the better way to add weight to any pattern. Jig Bombs are the solution to add more accurate weights. The trend of oversizing beads to add more weight means that tyers lose shank length and are limited to what hooks they can use. The unique teardrop shape of the Bombs means they are about 20% heavier than a standard slotted bead while keeping 15% more hook shank to create a body with.
All of this means that ﬂies maintain great proportions and drop into the zone and stay there. The unique design of the Jig Bomb’s will ﬂip any hook and turn it into a Jig and of course, it works beautifully on all hooks.
These Bombs are built into our specialized collection of ﬂats ﬂies called Survive Entry, so the sky is the limit with creativity. Available in 2.5mm-5.0mm and a rainbow of colors. Jig Bombs are the standard to which all other beads are measured against.
