There are many advantages to fishing with tungsten jigs. But, low cost and durability are not either of them. Removing an impaled jig from a fish with forceps or pliers will often cause the paint to flake off the jig or break the hook. This handy tool will save you time and money on the ice! It comes attached to a retractable lanyard, so that it is always close at hand while fishing. Use it summer or winter. Ice-a-holic’s Anonymous, approved.
