"Hi Slip, I used those moon jigs quite a bit this past summer tipped with the pink waxy. Preferred them over the conventual 90 degree jig. In fact, I rarely use the latter anymore in long casting. I like all of the ice jigs for long casting."

Slip-I use a  bead between the bottom of my slip floats to cushion the blow it receives  from banging against the split shot when hook setting and/or  popping the float . Those plastic float stems don't split since I've done that .

Nice Grips but they are larger then most of my catches :).  Did you have any luck with tenkara this year.
