Learn How To Handtie Jigs

Watch Pepop hand tie jigs and learn how to do it.

 

All Pepop’s Handtied Crappie Jig’s are tied using the highest quality materials. I also tie a special jig I call the Gammie jig that is currently made in six
styles.

Below are the steps it takes to tie a Gummie Jig.

Step #1
First I pick a painted head
and

wrap a thread base from the head about 1/4″down the shank.
