Trout jigs are the most overlooked and versatile lures for landing trout. They are effective in all types of water, ranging from tiny mountain streams, major rivers and trout ponds. Made of hair (natural or snythetic) or soft plastic, these lures can be fished slow or fast and in shallow or deep water depending where the trout are.
When you are not bait fishing, most anglers are using spinners or spoons. These commonly fished lures have enough built in action to catch some fish simply by casting and reeling. Either lure will produce many more for the creel, however, if fished with some finesse. So why are trout jigs not use frequently? Simple answer is most people do not want to bother with creating the action. Jigs are only effective when you make them come to life.
