A big buzz within the fishing community that is spreading like wildfire is deep
jigging with the new "butterfly" jig. Deep jigging has always been a very
productive way of catching fish at all levels up and down the water column.
Large heavy bucktail or nylon jigs were typically the angler's choice of tackle.
The jig was allowed to fall to the bottom and then worked back up to the
Recently, one of the leaders in cutting-edge fishing tackle, created a new series
of metal jigs that have really taken vertical jigging to the next level. These jigs
are widely known as the "butterfly" jig because of their distinctive flutter-like
zigzag motion produced under the water. The jig moves this way because of
the unique way the lure's edges are cut. Because of the sporadic movement and
action produced by the "butterfly" jig, it entices fish to strike more often than
traditional deep jigs.
What people may not know is that it is the entire fishing rig set-up that makes
the "butterfly" jig so effective. In addition to the "butterfly" jig, anglers also
need to have the correct action rod and reel and also use braided line. This
style of fishing originated in Japan and was recently introduced to American
anglers with great enthusiasm and success.
The "Butterfly" jig was most recently featured on ESPN2's number one fishing
show, Spanish Fly, with Captain Jose Wejebe. Since the airing of the show,
many intrigued fishermen are asking when the "butterfly" jig is going to be
available in stores. Good news to anglers, it is coming very soon and they
should check their local bait and tackle stores.
