Hair jig for smallies

Recommended Posts

So I wanted to make a hair jig out of bear and finally got my hands on one.  What do you guys think? image.jpeg

It looks well tied... but I don't have a need for smallie jigs that stout where I fish them.

It'll work best when there's a bug hatch going.  Up here in the north, the mayflies, lake flies, and caddis flies will all start hatching soon and they float up in big balls through the water column until they reach the surface and hatch.  The fish GORGE themselves on them and those small hair jigs are very effective.

I love bear hair but it is hard to find, at least at a decent price. That looks killer but a little too large for my liking as I have more success using hair with a finesse approach but if you have the right water it should work really well.

Iluvsmallies, you've got the hair perfectly distributed around the head and a very neat collar but I too think it's too heavy a hook. Maybe hang a chunk trailer from it and see what happens.

Try as neat a wrap on an 1/8 or 1/4 oz. light wire jighead and throw it when the water is below 50º without a trailer on 6 or 8 lb. line. The smallies will love it.
