Tips & Technique


Everything you need to know about the Nomad Design range of jigs including the Streaker, Buffalo, Ridgeback and Gypsea jigs and techniques on how to use each one - in each situation.


The Streaker Jig is a high pitch jig designed to be worked faster. it sinks quickly, so perfect for species such as Tuna, Mackerel, Amberjack and Kingfish plus a variety of other fast hitting species.

The sizes in the Streaker range mean you can fish this in shallow water for all reef and bottom dwelling species, through to deeper water applications. Watch the video to see why this jig is so unique.



The Ridgeback jigs were specifically developed as a hybrid Jig which have an angled head design. This head design creates an erratic sideways darting movement at the top of each lift of the rod, and when used slow it will flutter before starting to sink quickly.

Work it fast or slow and it will shoot off to the side giving an darting action both pelagic and bottom feeding fish cannot resist. Watch the video of lure designer Damon Olsen explaining the benefits of this special jig in the Nomad jig range.



Nomad Design owner Damon Olsen runs through the features of the Buffalo Jig. A Slow Pitch Jig, or often called a flatfall jig, the Buffalo is centre balanced with a flat side and will fall with a fluttering action, enticing the fish to strike as the lure falls.

It's ideal for sinking through schools of Tuna hanging deep, or using for reef species hanging down deep when worked with long slow flicks of the rod.



The Gypsea is a back slide jig designed to be worked at slower to medium speeds. It will dart around and change angle aggressively when twitched and jigged.

The variety of sizes in the Gypsea range means you can fish them in shallow water for Cod, Trout and Snapper, through to deep water for Kingfish, Amberjacks and Tuna. The smaller jigs work very well when "jiggled" just near the bottom for a range of reef species.
