Default Tiny Chains for Droppers

At one time, Hali Jigs sold DROPPER CHAINS, but cannot find them.

Have decided to make my own.


Searching for some tiny and/or micro chains for making Dropper Chains for my ice spoons & jigs?

suggestions, ideas?

John- I played with these chains a few years back and came to the conclusion that they are more of a headache than a help. I vastly prefer tying on a dropper with monofilament than using any chain. The chain does NOT scare the fish or cause them to shy away. As far as that goes no problem. But point of dropper hook has an uncanny knack of fouling in between the gaps in the chain. Gave up on them after using two ice seasons and have yet to regret it.

I tied some a couple of years back. (I wasnt impressed with my expertise in the results). Not sure what I'll do... may try both this season to see what happens.

THANKS FOR ALL THE COMMENTS, INSIGHTS & SUGGESTIONS.
