TITCHY and BIG JIM
A magical little lure that takes it's fair share of big Pike.
When I first designed tiny Jerk baits a few guys told me that there would be no call for them but time has proved them wrong, many manufactures now make smaller lures like the Jim and Darter after their potential was realised.
The Titchy Jim is a slow sinking twitch bait, and because of it's size it can be used on much lighter tackle and good hook ups can be expected. For it's size the T/Jim casts really well and in the water flicks and flashes around with ease. To retrieve let the T/Jim sink to the required depth and with flick's or twitches of the wrist slowly retrieve the lure back. There are many different ways of retrieving the T/Jim so experiment to maximize your catch rate. I could fill the site with pictures of Pike caught on the T/Jim, I have included some of them in the Gallery.
The Big Jim is basically a scaled up version of the T/Jim. Increased size means it casts further and probably a better choice if you use heavy tackle and traces.
Update: 24th June 2018. It has been brought to my attention that Loz made the Titchy Jim in different thicknesses of wood and some people have requested thinner Titchy Jims'. The feedback I have received is that there is no difference in the action of thick and thin Titchy Jims but the extra weight of the standard Titchy Jim means it cast's like a bullet. In response to this I have decided to start making Titchy Jims in two thicknesses and in order to differentiate the thinner version, as there is no loss of action instead of listing it under the Lite section I have christened it Slim Jim.
