Kahara's Kaharaba Round Head Finesse Rubber Jig

Kahara's Kaharaba Round Head Finesse Rubber Jig

kaharaba_image_03Kahara's Kaharaba Round Head Finesse Rubber Jig has recently caught the eye of a veteran Midwest angler, and American anglers got their first glimpse of it at the 2014 International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades show on July 14 at Orlando, Florida.

Years ago, a small skirted jig affixed to either a tiny pork trailer or a Baby Guido Bug was one of the mainstays of Midwest finesse anglers. The skirts on those jigs were either bucktail or marabou. But nowadays, a skirted jig and trailer are not wielded by many Midwest finesse anglers.

Michael Murphy of Gilbert, South Carolina, described the diameter of the strands of rubber that constitute the skirt as the thinnest in the world. In fact, he said --with an air of subtle rumor--that they are finer in size than frog hair.

According to the folks at Kahara, which is a relatively small tackle company in Japan, the skirt delivers what they describe as a pulsing and breathing action that can't be replicated by other skirt styles.


Its head is composed with what they describe as premium tungsten, which allows it to be smaller than the old-fashioned skirted finesse jigs Midwest finesse anglers used to employ. The tungsten head is affixed to a thin-wire, extremely sharp hook.


It is manufactured in two sizes: 1/16-ounce and 3/32-ounce.

It is available in five colors: Black, Dark Cinnamon, Green Pumpkin, Pro Blue, and Watermelon Pepper Gold. One online tackle retailer sells them for $6.19 per jig.
