SPRO® slow pitch jigs offer unique presentation to finicky fish

by SPRO 3 Jun 21:25 UTC

The secret is out. Long practiced by the Japanese and more recently by Australian anglers, slow pitch jigging is more recently catching on in the U.S. It's a different technique that requires different equipment than conventional speed jigging, yet it's just as effective, and sometimes more so. Rather than simulating a fast-fleeing baitfish to entice an aggressive strike, a slow pitch jig flutters and falls to imitate wounded or dying bait, representing an easy meal even for the most finicky finfish.

SPRO® has added a dynamic pair of new slow pitch jigs for this deadly effective technique. SPRO's new Shimmy Flat and Shimmy Semi Long jigs feature a flashy foil finish, some with luminous glow stripes for added attraction. The Shimmy Flat is a basic leaf-style slow pitch jig designed to flutter when it falls while the Shimmy Semi Long features a more streamlined design for greater versatility and a wider range of applications.

These jigs also offer the convenience of rapid deployment. All styles, colors and sizes come rigged with premium Gamakatsu Assist 700 hooks. "If an angler just wants to tie a jig on and put it down, this is it, ready to go, right out of the package," says SPRO Sales Manager Syd Rives.

SPRO has set up anglers for success to target a variety of species and sizes. SPRO's innovation is second to none when it comes to providing anglers all the essential baits to be effective on any body of water at any time. Anglers can count on SPRO's attention to detail and field-tested approval on these jigs and all of SPRO's products.
