Just wanted to share an interesting quote by writer Steve Quinn in the December 2011 issue of In-Fisherman:
“Compact, custom-crafted marabou and hair jigs have, until recently, been a well-kept secret on Canadian waters and in lakes of the northern U.S. The lid’s blown off the secret for avid smallmouth chasers but hair jigs continue to work amazingly well. Carefully chosen tackle presents the feather-like lures across shallow targets where they almost float, thanks to the buoyancy of these natural fibers. ”
Hill Brand Tackle’s mission is to push hair and feather jigs to their limits. We don’t just make the same old boring bucktail and marabou jigs the other guys call “custom.” We’re bringing together classic hair jigs and fly fishing’s streamers to make a truly innovative product that will stir the appetites of the most finicky smallmouth.
