If you are looking for a pair of “go to” winter run Steelhead jigs then you definitely need to try these two beauties!

The Winter Run Attraction and Assassin Steelhead jigs effectively search out hard to find chrome winter runs with a bright and dark colour option. These hot jigs utilize UV materials to help attract lethargic fish during cold weather conditions. Steelhead love to hit these jigs on a dead drift or on a swung presentation. For the best success always fish these jigs under a float and off the bottom.  Make sure you cast lots, cover as much water as possible and most importantly have fun!
