Nothing special and not very collectable.Fish it without fear of losing a valuable jig.

A guy I believe named Leonard Lussier used to make them. He used to fish every thurs on the GW out of Seal beach. Used to put 3 or 4 jigs in the tip jar every time I cleaned his fish. Great guy, excellent fisherman. This was back in the late 60s.

Came upon this jig in a collection of old salas's. Never heard of it before. Anything special or just another one to tie on and send down?

thanks

This was the very first jig I used in salt water. Mine was white and red. I caught a 2lb Bonito off the San Pedro jetty and I was hooked on fishing. I don't see them around any more, they were good then.

I met Leonard on the boat too. He gave me a few seconds.... lol..... probably what you got in your tip jar. Funny thing, about 3 years later we ran into him in LORETO. We went skiff fishing for cabrilla and small surface yellows. Got to say....He could work that jig like no one else.... (stragglers). He was quite a character and sure could sell. Me, I did okay with his jigs....not spectacular. He got a little "pissy" when I tried to throw a "Spoofer" or "Crocodile"....lol. But a true "bigger than life" type of guy.

Value....save 1.... fish the rest.
