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…

My son Scott & I were fishing the river, catching smallies. He was still using a Marabou moved ever so slightly. 19" is a good fish and full of fight.

Luke is making use of the fall fishing with a Black Bug. This giant is there who can brave the elements. Luke is from Iowa & sneaks across the line North on occasion.

Thanks Luke! Late Oct 2021

Todd my son, Kendra my granddaughter & her two soon-to-be anglers Eli & Wil. Kendra used a Bumblebee Sunfish jig to fool this crappie. Looks like the beginning of a fish fry.
