We took our classic Jig Spanker and updated the materials and hook to make it even better. If you are fishing a small deep pool for silvers and you need to get your fly down fast, the UV Chartreuse Jig Spanker is your fly. It sinks like a Rolex and has crazy action when you strip it.
Jig Spanker 2.0 – UV Chartreuse #2/0
Want to catch more silvers? Fish a fly that jigs. In this custom pattern, we took the legendary spanker fly, put it on a 90 degree jig hook, and added heavy eyes. Strip the fly, pop your rod tip, and hang on!
We recommend fishing Jig Spankers on a 16lb test Rio Salmon/Steelhead Leader.
