White River Fly Shop ProLite Jigs
I have used this jig in the 100th oz. sz. for several years now and have found both in lakes and streams it to be very effective. I've caught both small and large fish using a # 5 wgt. fly rod and a 2 lb. tippet. It's especially deadly on fish lurking in or below faster riffles because I have found the larger fish are usually closer to the bottom than not.
Here in Missouri the jig is close to a fresh water shimp type insect which the trout feed on at various times.
It's just as effective in the westren states and the numerous natural
trout populations there.
Olive and white are the two colors that have been most effective for me.
I think the 100th oz. sz is also key.

Micro may be best
I've used these BPS micro jigs for years. On a 5 wt fly rod have caught bluegills, largemouth bass, white bass, catfish and carp. In schooling white bass, the jigs come apart fairly quickly .A little clear nail polish solves the problem. Can't wait to try them on Colorado's trout this summer.

poor look but still caught fish
I recently bought a card of white prolite jigs and a card of black and yellow prolites in 1/80 and 1/100 oz. I was using them for trout on the end of a fly rod and I bought them in the flyfishing section of the website. When I recieved them the tails were extremely to long for the size of hook that was on them, so I had to spend about twenty minutes cutting off tails, then their were tag ends to the marabou that the flytyer decided to not trim. The jigs looked very unprofessional. When I tried them out though after "doctoring" them up myself, they caught fish That is why I am giving them a two and not a 1 rating.
