High pressure conditions and cold bright sunny days in winter often results in carp holding in the mid — uppers layers of the water column. They might also be fairly torpid but a zig bug presented in front of them can often act like a lure and nick a bite when all else fails.
The new Damsel Nymph zig bugs fit the bill perfectly. Expertly tied to super sharp ESP Curve-Shanx hooks and very buoyant, enough to support a long hook link for a prolonged period, the black foam forms a silhouette, replicating a nymph and acting as a lure, while the four bugs have different coloured ‘eyes’ — red, green, pink and yellow which add a visual flash of colour for added attraction.
Available in sizes 8 & 10, barbed & barbless.
