Jimmy D’s River Bugs

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!

Quality Note

*All products featuring Silicone (Rubber) Skirts.* The Silicone 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. Custom Hand Tied…

Jeremy caught this brute on a Black Marabou. The fish was 23" & weighed in at 6.88 lbs. Minnesota fisherman in Minnesota waters. Sounds like a potent combination to me.

Thanks Jeremy! June 2021

Watch Casey Ehlert on YouTube in my blog! He demonstrates a new technique of catching giant smallies using my Marabou Jigs.

Jeff shows that crappie fishing is on. This 14" beauty was taken with a "Cubbie". Jeff was fishing in Illinois.

Thanks Jeff! - Jimmy D, Late April 2021

This is Devin, age 10. He was fishing Lake Powell with a Super Minnow. He not only caught this nice walleye but won the "worst hair cut contest". A winner for both!

Good Going Devin! Late-June 2021
