 Hello all, I have found a great source for jigs although it is in Europe, They do ship registered mail for about $6-$7 and DHL for about $25 depending on the size of your order. It will take you about a month to get them from when you order with registered mail shipping. I have ordered three times from them for around 80 or so jigs total, they have a HUGE selection and great prices, and they accept paypal payments so you get the paypal guarantee also. Here is the link:

  http://www.waveinn.c...uid-jigs/7112/s

Here are some good ones---Shimano Exgile1.8 for $4.45, Storm Begix 1.5&1.8 for $1.95 each!! The Titan Wakame in 60mm is a fine jig and only$1.45 each! They also have a huge selection of Yamashita and Yo-Zuri jigs that are not often seen here in the USA. The Yo-Zuri Auri-Q RS are nice jigs at $8.95. The Yo-Zuri Oita Yakushima and Auri-Q Yakushima are also good jigs. If you order you need to remember to look at the size in millimeters. A Naory 1.8 is listed as 60mm so if you like the smaller jigs try to order the ones 60mm or less. They have a great color selection and give a better price on orders of more than one of the same size.

 So the month long wait will be easy to take since there won't be any squidding for a while, and there is no tax to pay on your purchase. I hope all you avid jiggers check out this site, I think you will love it!!

 

 HAPPY NEW YEAR to all!!

I just ordered a few more shimanos, they are almost out of Naory 1.8B  though, I hope they re-stock them, since they were half of what the New England tackle shops are charging. By the way, when I order registered mail the packages are sent from the Netherlands, the DHL package I got was sent from Spain. The Titan jigs are made in Spain and the Maki and Wakame are very well made jigs with good action.

Received my order the other day, exactly 25 days from placing it and paying with paypal. It seems to take about five or six days for the package to clear customs with regular registered mail, only a day with DHL shipping, but like I said I am not worried about time this time of year. I think I got the last of the original Naory Range Hunters, and they seem to be about out of the Naory RH in 1.8B which I hope they will re-stock. Have any of you tried ordering from this site? Still the largest selection I have found but I would like to know if anybody has found any other good sources for good jigs. I also buy from Coleman's, Jon has been very good to me over the years, but he doesn't carry the Yamashita or Yo-Zuri jigs which I seem to favor these days.

You're welcome!! They did get in more of the original Naory Range Hunter 1.8B jigs, so I just ordered a few more at eight bucks apiece. Half of what they sell for in RI. Figured I still have plenty of time to wait for the order before the squids are here.

My last order just arrived, 19 days after ordering and paying with paypal, and registered mail shipping. Seems like they are getting faster with shipping, or maybe the order cleared customs faster. At any rate, I got a load of great jigs for my squidding buddies and myself with plenty of time before the squids arrive. I sure hate losing the Yamashita Naorys at $15-$16 plus tax, not so afraid to go deep at eight bucks, no tax. With the Storm Begix at a buck and a half I can go deep whenever I want and not worry at all about hanging the bottom. The weights on the Storm and Shimanos are smaller than the Naorys but sometimes the slower sink rate works better, and I am going to experiment with adding a little lead solder to a couple to make them sink faster. I have done this with the old wood bodied Martinettis with good results, will have to see if I can get the solder to stick without melting the plastic bodied Storm and Shimanos. I think I will do OK with a small hot soldering iron. I'll post on how I did once I get it done.

I don't know why I've never thought about adding weight to the small jigs. I have endless trouble with the small jigs on the GI causeway so I just gave up on using them. I drop them in the water and the current and wind prevent the small jigs from ever sinking. I've seen little clip-in lead keels for squid jigs, but putting a $4 keel on a $16 jig to catch squid seems like bad money management. I have some cheap, large Chinese jigs that I will likely never use that I will try this on this weekend. Thanks for the tip!

Bill I hope you are good at soldering with a small hot iron, soldering to lead is a little tricky since the lead melts near the temperature the solder does, but it can be done. My only fear is getting the plastic bodies too hot since I have only so far done it on the wood bodied ones. Another trick is to put a one ounce bank sinker at the end of your line and tie your small jig about three to four feet above the sinker. Sometimes I tie it directly to the line and sometimes I use a swivel and a foot to two foot leader out to the jig. The latter method can be a pain with the little leader wrapping the main line but the jig behaves better, and it works pretty well for straight drop jigging. I use the sinker method in deep fast water like the channel into Edgartown harbor. You have to get used to the feel of the weight and I'll sometimes use two ounces but then I have to switch up to a stiffer rod than the one I use for just one small jig. Also with the small sinker on the end one never has to worry about snagging your jig on the bottom when they're deep. I see the Japanese have small bell shaped sinkers with little hooks on them that snap into the little holes on the lead keels some jigs have and I am thinking of trying that even if I have to drill a hole in the lead on one of my jigs. Generally I jig in 15' or less and in calmer water and a single Naory is all I need.

Hi Bill, I forgot to add that a few friends and myself will add split shot ahead of the small jig to help get it down in current. This works amazingly well in many cases, the split shot goes 3-4" ahead of the jig so the jig itself still has a good action. One advantage to this system is that you can try several different weights of split shot in a short time to see what works just right for the conditions. I just added some solder to a Shimano 1.8S jig from Waveinn since the jig is a slow sinker. It was very hard to get the extra solder on without heating the plastic too much. I probably got a little less than a gram of extra weight, gonna try another one soon. I also am thinking about trying to solder on a small piece of lead rather than trying to build up the weight with solder alone. Some of my modified Martinettis have regularly outfished many jigs and I really like "tuning" or modifying jigs, although the Naory 1.8B has seemed to be the most perfect jig I have found for most situations. You may want to try the Naory in size 1.8D which has a much heavier weight and is meant for deep fast diving and it works well in currents.
