Red Jig Slider

ole_florida_mikeole_florida_mike Posts: 28 Greenhorn
For redfish from Louisiana to Key Largo, the Red Jig Slider pushes a lot of water, has a ton of food-like movement, and gets down to the fish. The wide gap jig hook has a good track record of finding fish lips, and the heavy Tungsten Hour Glass eyes make sure the fly flips over and swims correctly. Although the hair is spun on the top side of the hook shank (the side the fish see), mastering the technique lays the groundwork for creating all kinds of spun deer hair heads and bodies.
