(05/11/2001 - ) Jigs have become the number one lure for winning tournaments and catching big bass in heavy cover. Many jigs on the market today have hooks that are too small and inadequate weed guards. Falcon lures has developed a jig with several unique features to solve your jig fishing problems.

Falcon jigs were originally designed for penetrating mats of floating water hyacinths. Through years of use in tournaments throughout the country, they have been refined into the ultimate jig for any type of cover whether it is vegetation, wood or brush.

Although new to the fishing public, Falcon jigs have been winning tournaments since 1989. The unique head design makes this jig the most weedless and snag resistant jig period! The slim profile allows for effortless penetration of even the heaviest cover. Other features that set it apart from other jigs are an oversize hook, a tournament grade weed guard, a skirt collar that prevents the skirt from sliding down the hook, and a trailer keeper barb that keeps plastic trailers firmly in place. Falcon jigs are equipped with a rattle strap collar and two large rattles for maximum noise and are available in many metal flake and Silachrome scale colors. Jig sizes are 5/16, 3/8, 1/2, 3/4, 1, 1-1/4 & 1-1/2 ounces. The 5/16 thru 1/2 ounce have 5/0 and the 3/4 thru 1-1/2 ounces have 6/0 Mustad 2XS, black nickel, ultra point hooks for the utmost in hooking and holding power.

New to the Falcon lure line up is a unique weedless jig head for plastic tubes. The Falcon "Flipping Tube Jig head" is a truly innovative way to fish plastic tubes. This jig head is inserted into plastic tube and provides fisherman a superior method for fishing tube baits.

Plastic tubes last much longer and the hooking percentage is much higher when rigged with a Falcon Flipping Tube Jig head versus Texas style rigging.

Jig head sizes are 1/8, 3/16, 1/2, 5/16 and 3/8 ounces and are available with black or brown weedguards..
