Video: How to Tie the Isonychia Smoke Jumper

The Smoke Jumper has been around for awhile, and it’s quite popular on the Bighorn River in Montana. It was originally tied as a midge emerger by Mike Hoiness of Yellowstone Fly Goods in Billings, but it’s now tied in many sizes and colors to mimic a variety of mayflies and caddisflies, as well. Years ago, we featured the original pattern and a Tightline Productions video that showed you how to tie it.

In today’s video, Tim Flagler demonstrates an Isonychia version, featuring a cool segmented body created by making dubbing noodles. It’as a very simple pattern that sits love on the water, yet the CDC wing is easy to see. This is important because Iso fishing is often best right at dusk.
