The Black Berdan Cap Spider is tied on both a #8 jig hook and a #10 jig hook. The weight of the #8 jig hook is 1/64 ounce and the weight of the #10 jig hook is 1/124 ounce. This fly sinks fast with the hook point up to avoid hang-ups on the bottom of the lake or stream. It is excellent for pan fish of all types as well as bass and crappie.
Here is a quote from James R. Babbs book Crosswaters, “Fly-rod jigs are a useful addition to the all-around fly fishers bag of tricks.”
Options: #8 1/64 ounce jig hook and #10 1/124 ounce jig hook
