The “Jassid” Fly Tying Video Instructions

The “Jassid” is a great tiny dry fly for technical waters.  The Jassid was originally developed by Vince Marinaro and made to imitate a small leaf hopper.  I believe the Jassid imitates all kinds of tiny little bugs found throughout late summer, such as beetles, large ants, spiders and even micro caddis.  Whatever a trout think the Jassid fly is, they go crazy for it!!  The Jassid is one of those flies you whip out when a fish has refused every pattern in your fly box.  You need good eyes to see the Jassid on the water.  The slim profile and sparse hackle allow for this fly to sit delicately on the surface, making it VERY had to see.  Just watch for the rise in the vicinity of the fly!!
