On Oct. 4, Casey Kidder who is a veteran Midwest finesse angler fromTopeka, Kansas, filed a note on the Finesse News Network about Mondo Tackle's new 1/16-ounce Finn S Mondo Jigs.
Kidder said it was designed for Midwest finesse applications, such as affixing it to a 2 1/2-inch Z-Man's Fishing Products' ZinkerZ. Kidder also noted that a weedless version might be in the offing, which will appeal to finesse anglers who ply brush-filled waterways.
The hook size is a No. 1. There are three brands of hooks to choose from: Mustad, Owner and Sohumi. It is available in one color, which is chartreuse, or unpainted.
A package of 12 chartreuse or unpainted Mustad 1/16-ounce Finn S jigs retails for $10.68, a package of 12 chartreuse or unpainted Sohumi 1/16-ounce Finn S jigs retails for $8.28; a package of 12 chartreuse or unpainted Owner 1/16-ounce Finn S jigs retails for $11.88.
Mondo has an 1/8-ounce Finn S jig, which is a tad too heavy for most Midwest finesse applications, but some finesse anglers might find the 1/8-ouncer useful for working with a four-inch single-tail grub.
