About MDR Tackle
Quality Products and Materials
Made in the USA
I have been saltwater fishing for over 30 years. I will retire from neurosurgery the end of this year (2018) and devote more time to my fishing passion. Over the past 12 months I have personally handcrafted, perfected, and tested these products as time and weather permitted. I am proud to say that these are the most productive jigs I have ever used, landing numerous saltwater species. I use various combinations of color shifting tape, JigSkinz Glow shrink sleeves, UV/fluorescent paint, and long-lasting glow-in-the-dark paint. My current available jig sizes range from 3/4 to 8 oz. These are primarily for saltwater, but the smaller items may be useful for freshwater. Each item is individually handcrafted by me in the USA. I use quality materials including VMC hooks and split rings, unbreakable non-welded solid rings. Assist cord is 300# Kevlar. The smaller jigs have Mustad hooks.
The JigSkinz covers/sleeves will tear especially with toothy fish. I offer several replacement covers to patch or replace. There are numerous additional options at JigSkinz.com.
If you are fortunately still reading this, “MDR” just popped in my head one day in anticipation of this endeavor, The initials stand for MD Retired, or my family Mary, Melissa, Derek and Robert. I was happy to get the desired domain MDRTackle.com,
I look forward to your feedback. When you catch a monster with these jigs please send me a photo, preferably with jig still attached. I do like to brag.
If you have been jigging for a while, you likely have several jigs that are too trashed to fish. I can likely refurbish them for a reasonable price, within the size ranges that I offer. Feel free to contact me.

Enjoy and Tight Lines.
