Fly Tying: Jig Heads to Dredge With?

I found these little jig head hooks (wt. 1/32 oz) at a big box sports shop (oh yes purist, I go to a few of them now and then; no shame here). I wondered if the angle of the presentation with the eye atop the ball would make for an interesting presentation of the heavy nymph and a trailing nymph from the bend of the hook. Will try this and see how it presents. Jigs beneath a bobber are a successful option for NW gear guys chasing Steelhead (no, I won’t use a mega-strike indicator/bobber). This is a much smaller option that may provide an interesting short line/dredging option while nymphing for trout or small mouth. Standard fair for much of the country for warm water species. I flatten down the spike at the neck, which secures tubes and skirts.

    Nice jigs! I thought I was the only one who secretly dredged with improvised bait caster tackle. You can take a look at mine via the following link: http://friendofthefly.blogspot.com/
