Opti-angle needle point, chemically sharpened, nor-tempered, forged, 2 extra strong, black nickel
This stout, sturdy hook is an excellent choice when fishing small jigs and swim baits for larger fish. One of the most versatile jig hooks, it is ideal for Steelhead, Salmon, Bass, Walleye and in-shore species such as spotted bass, Specks and Sea Trout.
I'll be using the hooks by adding tungsten and brass beads and tying weighted
nymphs to use for trout, grayling and, believe it or not. salmon. Patterns like
peeping caddis and other caddis patterns will head the list. But we have a while
to wait as the brown trout season doesn't start until 15th March.
my purchase of mustad 32833BLN black nickel jig hook was for balanced leech flys which
we are using a lot here in Utah and Idaho
I am a fly fisherman mostly for trout. I use the jig hooks for leech patterns in
lakes. They ride upside down and don't get hung up like standard hooks on weeds and
It's pleasure to answer you. (sorry for my english). And welcome with any questions.
I want to use it with do-it mold, to get "ultra light" jig-head for up to 1/8 OZ.
Becouse we have limited stock low-weight jig-heads in russian fishing stores.
So i could make by myself with this hooks mold some lead.
You can see the mold here (cabelas link)
the hooks are awesome! Used it with 1/8 oz jig head. Very sharp and solid.
goona buy some more but a little bit large.
I plan to use these hooks to tie a fly pattern called the "Balanced Leech"
for trout. Great fly - especially in black.
The hooks will be used to tie up leaches for lake fishing as I am a fly
fisherman. I will use Phillip Rowley's technique of tying on a straight pin
and metal bead so the hook will balance level in the water as leaches swim
horizontally. Once the length of straight pin and weight of bead balance the
jig hook then it's easy to repeat the process.
Thanks for the quick service, I use the hooks making jig
heads for fishing steelhead. I have been making jig heads for fishing steelheads
here in Michigan for nearly 30 years. I fish the jigs under a carlise type bobber in
the open rivers during the Winter and in the Spring during the spawning run. When I
started and up to just recently I used Eagle Claw 630 jig hooks with good success
but know with the new Mustad hooks I thought I'd give them a try. I paint the
jig heads in several different colors including Glow in the dark which it is now
common to fish steelhead during darkness on heavily fish waters. Now we are adding
Glow in the dark type flashabou and other dressings to the jig heads or just fish
them either wax worms or wigglers. We use a Glow stick attached to our float to fish
at night and use a UV flashlight or camera flash to charge our glow in the dark
materials. The UV flashlights really work great and you can buy them on E-bay for
about 4 bucks, they work far better than regular type white light. One of the nice
things about fishing jigs with a float is just about anybody can catch steelhead on
them and little to no snags (hang ups) since you set your depth 1 to 2 foot of
bottom. At night we attach a glow stick to our bobbers. I have attached a few
pictures just for kicks.
Well I use the jig hooks to tie various marabou,
rabbit fur and schlappen jigs for winter steelhead! I tie a lot of black, white and
pink jigs. I use a pin and bead or a crimp on a small split shot on the bend of the
hook for weight. The small treble hooks will be use off of Lake Michigan piers for
fishing skien (small chunks of spawn) for whitefish!
