Charlie Brewer's Slider Heads - Spider
Won't Hold Big Fish
I am a great fan of Slider jigheads, but not in this hook weight. It is much too thin to hold big fish. The hook will straighten every time.
Go with the Pro Series. The hook is thicker, sturdier, and comes in weights that can still be used for finesse techniques.
If you plan to catch nothing but smaller crappie and bluegills, this will work fine. But, don't plan on landing anything over a pound.

count on 'em
Combined with a 3"-4" senko---this combo is a Bass killer. It is a go to bait when the fishing pressure is high--as it is here on NY waters. Tie one on--it usually is taken on the fall--awesome rig!!

There is no substitute
I have been using the Charlie Brewer Slider Head jig hook of over 8 years. It is the only light wire hook that I have found that allows a true weedless presentation. The offset notch is the key. I buy the 1/16 oz. for finesse worms in standing water and 1/8 oz for tubes in the river. The only problem is landing a truly large fish requires some skill avoiding straightening out the hook. Charlie does make a heavier hook version, but it is too heavy for finesse presentation. Try these hooks, you will learn to depend on them.
