Your thoughts on the angle like on a fle-fly(45 ?) as compared to a conventional 90 that I see on most jigs.

Thanks, JB in WTexas

The only thing it does drop the tail of the jig down more than the 90 hooks. If you can get the fle-fly hooks with the lead out front it would be o k but may mess up the lower pull of the 45 hook. I have tried this with bigger hooks for dock shooting using 30,35,45, and the 60 degrees but never did find one that the jig tail would stay up to look real.
