Big Smallie Tackle – First Impressions

We’ve mentioned Big Smallie Tackle before when we compared them to Rockstar Lures, and no they’re not actually related in any way other than being fantastic handmade lures! Big Smallie Tackle are handcrafted hair jigs with “unmatched attention to detail” according to their creator Ryan Lampe and that’s no marketing fluff. Ryan leaves the fluff to his handpicked choice of high quality hair and feathers used to create these fantastic jigs.

I received my small collections of jigs in the mail last week, all individually wrapped in small ziplock bags. Though they came packed nearly flat in the bubble envelope they were shipped in they puffed up very nicely with only a little shake. So far, I’m very impressed with the quality of Big Smallie Tackle’s jigs and I have a feeling these are going to make those Toronto Island spring pike go crazy!
