Here are some examples of my Reel Tech Barbell Steelhead Jigs. These are tied on a smaller size #2 or even a size #4 premium hook. Most often, I use both plated and plain lead barbell eyes because I like the weight they provide over brass. The hook shanks are then wrapped in .035 lead wire for added weight. Sometimes the fish want something a bit smaller than the standard 1/8 oz jig, and in the darker colors, they make great clear water buggy looking jigs! The fish LOVE EM!
