The leadhead jig works. It's one of the most versatile, precise tools you will ever tie on your line. Fishing a leadhead is more of an approach or system than it is just another lure. It's a method of presentation that can be as simple or as complex as the angler wishes.
In truth, the Float-N-Fly technique is intricate to a high degree and carefully refined through years of testing. The result is a presentation that just may be the best ever devised for catching cold water bass.
