Developed by signature tyer Mike Sexton, the Carotene Jig combines simplicity with versatility, using favorite materials on a jig hook for an all-encompassing nymph that adeptly mimics stoneflies, caddis, and mayflies.

Masterful Blend of Simplicity and Functionality

The Carotene Jig was born from a desire to create a straightforward, yet highly effective pattern.

The design utilizes a jig hook paired with Sexton's chosen materials, balancing ease of tying with exceptional underwater performance.

Its effectiveness and reliability have given Mike Sexton immense confidence, making it a staple in his arsenal regardless of the location or conditions.
