The Marabou Jig – classic jig tying

My marabou jig is basically a Jack Gartside’s Soft Hackle Streamer tied on a jig hook. The intro to this video was filmed on one of the first warm days in April – that’s why I talk about ice out and early spring fishing. This jig catch fish all year round, but when fish are sluggish and slow – maybe because the water is extremely cold… or warm, it outfishes most other lures. Excellent choice for vertical fishing as well… and for jig & bobber fishing. Can be tied in any color combination, to suit water temperature or clarity – and to imitate specific baitfish, shrimps, insects larvas or crayfish.
