Jig head killer buggers

by Rob Ruff
(Wichita Falls, TX )

I picked up some Wapsi jig heads and tied a few killer buggers. Went to the local flood ditch and had a blast. The Daiwa Kiyose 43m worked nicely with a 4.5 Tenkarausa level line.

Jig heads are hot

Here in Kansas City jig head hooks, both weighted and unweighted are all the rage among the local tiers. For buggers, nymphs or anything else that's going deep that upturned hook makes a lot of sense.

Awesome that you caught some bass Rob! Im looking to catch some serious bass ( serious meaning longer than 4 inches) this year on my keiryu rod.

Alan, I'm headed to Crane Creek in March hoping to catch a McCloud rainbow. Roy, those bass put up a pretty decent fight but it may have lasted 30 seconds at the most on that Daiwa 43m.

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
