Cody’s Tiger Tamer – The Ultimate Chum Salmon Jig

Cody’s Tiger Tamer – The Ultimate Chum Salmon Jig

This was a pattern developed one night on the tying bench when I decided to spice the jig up a bit with more flash and brighter colours. Knowing that pink and purple mixed well and was deadly for taming Chum Salmon to bite, I decided to give this jig a try in the morning. Needless to say, it was the only one that remained on my line the entire day, as I continued to severely out fish my friends. This is always my go-to pattern and has never failed me. This jig also works well for Coho.
