Lead jig heads on the Mustad 32833BN  X-Strong 90 degree Steelhead hook Sizes  1/80 ounce #10 to 1/8 ounce #1.   They have a very durable Powder Coat in great colors.  The hook eyes are always clear and ready to go.

The 2X Strong J1990BN is a new hook for jig heads 2X Strong: 1/64oz #8 and 1/32oz #6.  Their shanks are slightly shorter, the wire is heavier, the points slightly longer and the barb is more forward of the bend to hold fish even better.

Good sizes for Great Lakes Steelhead are #6  1/48oz, #6  1/32oz and #8  1/64oz.  Steelhead Jigs are fished under a bobber, natural drift or with some added action.  The jig heads are effective at quickly getting the bait or jig pattern into the strike zone and surely hook about 100% of hits.  Jig heads can be dresses with a rubber lure or fly patterns such as  Leaches, Minnows, Mop Worms, Hex nymphs, Stonefly nymphs, or Rubber Leg creatures.

The smaller sizes ( 1/80 oz  #10, 1/64 oz  #8, 1/48 oz #6 and maybe 1/32 oz #6 )  are pleasant to fly cast and effective when drifted under an indicator or retrieved as quick moving patterns for trout. 

For flies and rubber trout worms, Glow Silver and Black are my best colors.  Silver Heads to use for pink, white or chartreuse worms, and for any Pearl-White-Silver minnow pattern.  Black Heads for Nymphs, Leaches, bottom minnows or creature patterns.  UV Flame or Chartreuse heads are good in muddier southern streams.
