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…

Frank is fishing a small river in Illinois in his Jackson Kayak. He is using the new "Cubbie" minnowhead. That combo produced over 15 smallies with Franks expertise of course.

Thanks Frank! Mid October 2020 ~ Jimmy D

This is my boy Steve showing that the fall bite is just starting here in Minnesota, and only to get better. His choice of black river bugs is the staple he uses when river fishing in early September.

This big pike about 15 lbs fell to a "Spring Bear". Tom and Paul from Connecticut had some excitement with a breaking net while bringing it aboard.

Early Nov 2020

Theo tricked this nice smallies with a River Bug off his dock, just a few docks upriver from mine. He is new to hair jigs but appears to have found a new tool to use.

Mississippi River, Mid-October 2020

Thanks Theo - Jimmy D

Brianna is my granddaughter and loves to fish and knows how. She is using a 1/32 Sunfish Jig. As you can see no tipping is necessary. Summertime + Sunnies = Good Combo!

Mid-July 2020

Brad King & buddy Mark took 14th place in a big tourney. Most of the fish were on a 3/32 Black Bass Marabou. Brad is Canadian & has been a customer for years.

Thanks Guys! - Jimmy D, Aug 2020

Tom nailed this big Largemouth on a Spring Bear Jig. The bass went over 5 lbs. He fishes out of Connecticut.

Thank you! - Jimmy D, Sept 2020

Luke from Iowa used a Spring Bear to land this nice smallie. The fall hair jig season is just starting in the midwest and gonna get better, much better.

Thanks Luke - Jimmy D, Late Sept. 2020
