John’s Jigs

maxijig-steelheadJohn’s Jigs have been on the market since I started fishing for Steelhead, they are a great choice for anyone needing to build a selection of Summer Run jigs. All of their jigs are tied with ultra-durable rabbit fur on Gamakatsu hooks. They are available in almost every color combination you could imagine. They catch plenty of Summer Steelhead. I always have my jig box stocked with a few black, purple, red and nightmare patterns during the summer.

Over the Edge Jigs

Over The Edge Tackle offers some of the most unique Steelhead jig patterns that I’ve come across on store shelves.steelhead-trout-beads Whoever is designing these patterns gets an A+ for creativity. I really like the looks of their low-profile Jig-L-Bum series for summertime low-water conditions, and the Roe-Bot series because it infuses the use of beads into a low-profile design. High quality design and all jigs are tied on high quality Gamakatsu hooks.

Aerojig Hackle Series

Aerojig makes a Hackle Series that is arguably one of the most widely used jigs on the market. These jigs offer a unique hackle tail and slender profile that is perfect for lower and clear water conditions. All jigs are tied on high quality Gamakatsu hooks. Even during early summer, when our rivers flow high and cold due to snowmelt, the brighter orange and pink Aerojig patterns are exceptionally effective.

Worden’s Maxi Jigs

Worden’s Maxi Jigs have a lot going for them, they use super high quality Owner hooks, the beaded body is very fishy, the designers reached out to the region’s top fishing guides to create a bunch of great looking color patterns, and they catch a lot of Steelhead.
