STEELHEAD DVD Imagine walking down to a beautiful river with your steelhead rod rigged up with a float and jig. On your first cast the float goes down river about ten feet and disappears. You set the hook, feel the weight of a heavy fish, and see the bright silver flash under the water. Fish on! Now imagine getting it all caught on film. That’s our opening winter steelhead action scene and it only gets better from there.

MICRO & MACRO HACKLE JIGS Our Micro & Macro hackle jigs are tied using beautiful hackle feathers that are palmered onto a blood-red Daiichi Bleeding Bait hook. Instead of lead for the jig heads, we use environmentally friendly solid brass beads. The finest hackle feathers are then selected and palmered onto the hook shank creating a very enticing yet subtle offering. Once in the water, the palmered feathers come to life giving the jig a full look that is different from anything else out there. These jigs are perfect for low, clear water conditions where a small presentation is the key for getting steelhead to take your offering. Our Macro jigs are tied on a #6 jig hook and weigh approximately 1/64 oz.

Salmon Marabou Jigs Our salmon marabou jigs are quite possibly the strongest jigs you'll ever use. Extensively field tested for years in the tributaries of the legendary Tillamook Bay, these jigs have proven themselves against the largest King salmon. We take a minimum of four large marabou feathers and palmer them one at a time onto a stout 3/0 or 5/0 Owner Saltwater, needle-point jig hook. A touch of matching Krystal Flash is added for a finishing touch. These baseball size jigs are made specifically for King salmon but can also be used for large steelhead, Coho and Chum salmon too. Tie one of these jigs on your line and fish with confidence knowing you have one of the toughest jigs available on the market today. Now available with Owner 5/0 needle point saltwater hooks. These 5/0 hooks are by far the strongest jig hooks we’ve ever offered the public. Rig up your rod with 40-pound test and feel confident that you’ll land the biggest King salmon on the planet using our salmon marabou jigs.
