I was using these jigs years before Bass Pro offered them. They are killers on smallmouth at Dale Hollow Lake. Now I am using them in New Brunswick, Canada after I was told jigs didnt work here. Just ask my friend Charle if they work. I don't know why I ever got away from using them. I used them with pork rind another bait I had gotten away from.

great cold water jig
This is a great cold water jig. It has a perfect profile. I like to match it with a real pork trailer for fall bass, and fish it slow.

PUNISHMENT FOR WHOM?
I was greatly disappointed by the claims that "this jig will come through the heaviest cover." The 3/8oz black-blue I bought repeatedly hung up in average size shoreline rocks and snagged in mostly bear laydowns. The problem I see is that the head and eye are too vertical so the head bumps into whatever it contacts instead of sliding over.
While it is nicely hand-tied and has a strong "Gama" 3/0 hook (2/0 for 1/4oz) with ample synthetic hair, the "V" shaped guard is a little too soft and the paint chipped after a few casts. My experience shows this jig punishes the fisherman more than the fish.

Great for largemouth
My grandpa who taught me how to fish and got me hooked on the sport of bass fishing always used hair jigs so I looked every where and didn't find anything close to his old jigs and then I found these and have ordered at least 5-10 of each color. I just wish they made 1/2-3/4-1 once instead of just the 3/8 and lower. Also a black with an orange strip on the back would be great. Besides that they are awesome and I have caught tons of fish and one of these are always tied on the end of one of my lines. Great purchase and I will be getting more.
