he recent success of Butterfly Jigging in the United

States can be attributed to its early development in

Japan during the early 1990s. Japanese anglers developed a revolutionary style of deep water jigging that changed the nature of jigging as it was known at the time. Fishing as deep as 500 feet, they were using the first generation of super lines coupled with fluorocarbon shock leaders and the original jig designs. Shimano was able to successfully identify the significance of these jigs, and created a new lure design introduced as the Butterfly Jig. The lure combined with the line and tackle, helped increase sensitivity to detect bites, and get successful hooksets. The end result has been an increase in fish catching percentages, proving that the Butterfly Jig

System works in aiding anglers across the globe to catch more fish! A variety of species have been caught throughout Japan and Australia with the introduction of the Butterfly Jigs, and the technique developed to fish them. Anglers in the United States are enjoying the same success with the launch of Shimanos Butterfly Jigs, and technique in 2005. The Butterfly Jig system has proven its fish catching prowess in a variety of different oceans throughout the world, and has recently generated astounding success for fisherman across both North and South America. The Butterfly Jig catches more species of fish in more locations, while providing you an exhilarating fishing experience!

he Butterfly Jigging System

uses tackle designed to attract

and detect bites from even the most finicky of fish. Its an action/reaction system designed to allow you to savor the invigorating feel of every movement while retrieving the lure. The feel of the bite is similar to the feeling of electricity flowing through the rod with every movement of the fish exaggerated, due to the sensitivity of the tackle.

B U T T E R F LY - R E G U L A R / F L AT- S I D E Jigging Action: The Butterfly Jigging technique


requires a precise motion to impart the right fish catching action to the jig. This technique works for both conventional and spinning tackle with the same results. After the jig is dropped to the desired depth, the rod tip is facing down. With an upward circular motion, the rod tip will be lifted up on the upswing of the reel handle and lowered on the downstroke of the rotation. The reel retrieve is a tight circular motion that is close to the body with the rod butt held loosely under your left armpit. The distance in which the rod tip moves from top to bottom is approximately 10 to 20 inches depending on the desired lure action and retrieval speed. This technique will work on a fast or slow retrieve depending on how the fish are reacting.

B U T T E R F LY - L O N G Jigging Action:
The Butterfly -Long Jig is a very productive lure and works well with the standard jigging technique outlined previously, as well as the following Long jig technique explained below. The Long model jigging technique works with both spinning and conventional tackle. This technique requires the rod butt held loosely under your armpit depending on what type of tackle (spinning or conventional). After the jig reaches its desired depth, the rod tip is facing down. With an upward jerking motion, bring the rod tip up to the 11 oclock position. Once up there, wind down taking up the slack in the line until it comes tight, which will lower the rod into the starting position then repeat as previously described. You can adjust the speed of retrieve depending on how the fish react.

SHIMANO TC 4 F CONSTRUCTION
Shimano has engineered the next generation of TC4 construction. This new construction uses a high carbon butt section and fused together with a TC4 tip section. This new blank design gives you the pulling power of TC4 but with less weight and increased sensitivity. You will also notice a much faster recovery rate, which will increase the jigging action.
