One of my top "jig" patterns is derived from a small willow leaf spin blade with a #4 or #6 hook soldered (Jig lead!) into the concave section. This flutters & twitches down (maintaining an effective horizontal position) very slowly, which Spring crappie seem unable to resist. The rear of the hook can be dressed in all manner of materials, including tiny plastics -all tippings are "rocked" into extra action which have called in for me bluegills, bass, trout, carp, and many others. The slow descending action of these jigs has produced scads of fish when faster dropping leadheads have been blanked! One small company makes & paints these- microspoons.com - and has such great prices on these and other jigs, that I don't know whether its worth the time & gear to do these "spoon-heads" up at home!
