Freshwater Shrimp JigImportant Ordering Information: The size you order determines the style1/64 oz = Glitter Tail (Chartreuse shown)
1/32 oz = Glitter Tail (Chartreuse shown)Because tiny shrimp are found all over the globe, their flash and size are a universal feeding shape to most every fish. The freshwater shrimp jig has the flash tinsel and fly combo that fish hone in on and strike. Grabbing their attention with the flash of light similar to the real thing as it catches rays, the freshwater fresh shrimp catches the focus of fish and gets strikes.With the quality materials making up this fly jig, the freshwater shrimp jig flicks on the fall, flashes and parachutes into the eye line of now curious fish. The hair and structure form a slow-fall drop that brings strikes from crappie, trout, bass, perch, walleye, white bass and blue gills - any fish that ever ate eats the shrimps.Crappie fisherman know how on-the-drop fishing is key to catching. A proper crappie jig features water-catching hair shoots and materials that offer a superb slow-drop. Crappie anglers can choose between the Freshwater Shrimp Crappie Jig with glitter tail or the 1/16 oz. and up Freshwater Shrimp Maribou Crappie Jig With Glitter tail for premium hair fly jig combination that few monster crappies resist.
Materials make the jig and make the presentation. Proven tie patterns with premium materials make jigs that hook lips because the jig performs in the water column. The sliver flash of the jig head as it pops from the twitch of your rod tip, back to the tinsel glitter tail put a flash in the water that locks the fish in. Flick your rod tip and then follow your jig down -visualizing the slow drop in your mind - follow that downward with your rod tip. Be ready to strike if you get slack line or feel a tap as the jig is suited for attacks "on-the-drop" as the jig slowly falls. You can also watch your line for any sign of slack - this is a fish strike or structure which you should be ready to raise the tip back up to set the hook or lift the jig.
Also essential in a jigging setup is a rod that will transmit the lightest tap back to the angler's hand at the rod handle. High quality carbon wrap spinning rods send the line vibrations from the tip eye straight through to the handle and the angler's fingers. Placing your trigger finger on the rod blank above the cork is a great way to add a little extra feel to sense the lightest strike tap. For great jigging rods with unsurpassed touch and sensitivity, try some of the Gapen Adventure Spinning rods to work your jig and feel light strikes before they get away.
Dan Gapen, Sr. spent 8 years tying, testing and re-tying this lure. It works on any gamefish, which feed on crawfish. Nothing attracts and entices fish to strike better than natural deerhair and feathers. Combined these features with the patented, SNAG-FREE wedge-head of this lures relative, the UGLY BUG jig, and you've created a monster fish catcher.

Nepag ORIGINAL Weight-Forward SpinnerThe Nepag is the angling world’s original in-line spinner lure! Often imitated, never duplicated. Created in Nipigon, Ontario, Canada byDon Gapen, Dan’s father in 1941. This NEW lure has been recreated by his son, Dan. Nepags were original made to encourage the world famous brook trout of the Nipigon River. It was then copied by John Hodackof the Paul Bunyan Bait Company in St. Paul,Minnesota, thus the Paul Bunyan 66 was born. That's right - it is a huge compliment to be copied - and we were the original - still the best.Next the 66 was copied when the Erie Dearie weight-forward spinner came to be. Casting and retrieving this lure requires a slow lifting and lower-ing of rod tip for best results. A similar method is used when trolling. Jigging bottom with a slow lift and lower will produce all bottom-hugging game fish such as bass, lake trout, catfish, salmon and walleye. The Nepag hosts a “glow” head made of tin, a light-flashing holographic spinner, and up riding snag-free hook and a deer hair body which holds scenting 10 times longer than plastic.
