Using Metal Jigs is one of the most active and exciting methods in the LRF arsenal. Metal Jigs are available in a wide array of shapes, sizes and colours and can be fitted with small treble hooks, singles, or assists. The are normally cast out or jigged vertically in deep water. Sink-and-draw is a successful technique and fish will often attack the metal lure on-the-drop.
