Arnolds K & E Fairy Jigs
« on: Dec 17, 2021, 03:17 PM »
Anyone make the K&E Fairy Jig,


Finding it difficult to find them anywhere except a few places on-line with limited color selection. I used to be able to just pick them off a line card ad Farm and Fleet. But they don't seem to have them anymore. Maynards tackle also has a Flutter spoon that is similar but checkingout with PayPal does not seem to be working. Plus their shipping costs is $9.00 for a very small/light item.


Just wondering is anyone is making their own.


these seem to work pretty well on panfish.

Call them direct.  Might be able to help.

If you can't find them and willing to try something new, I suggest Northland's Forage Minnow in 1/32 oz. Started using them 2 years ago for Perch and Bluegill. I was pleasantly surprised.  ;)

It says Cabela's is carrying them, $2.49 each? The Moxy Jig has been my favorite since I started ice fishing 60 years ago! I have probably a doz left and a bunch of Fairy jigs. I have a friend that gave me all the material to make them. Jigs and flippers but they are more the Fairy jig size. I prefer the Moxys. I use to see them in bait shops in Michigan but think Arnold is on way out. Good luck finding them!

Thanks for the links. I got some ordered. I didn't set the moxie jigs on the chuck and deb link or I would have picked some of those up to try also.

Not to be a naysayer but I'm wondering about the quality of hooks on these jigs. ??? Never heard of either one of these companies. Chuck and Deb's do say K and E's...which are good. But Joanie Jiggs...dunno. Would like to hear about them once you receive them jbird.

I've used these for years. Never broke a hook. But I have lost a blade in only 1 jig in the past. I like the flutter of the blades. An old friend showed me these years ago and I still use them. But I mainly use the tungsten ice jigs now.
