I have been fishing lead head micro jigs for about 25 years. These are made on size 12 gold wire hooks and come in 1/80 or 1/100 oz. In competition fishing lead isn't legal, hence the tungsten beads and offset eyes. Umpqua, Partridge and Daiichi offer the offset jig hooks in sizes 10-16. The Daiichi are $5.75/15 and come in sizes 10-16. I sell the Wapsi micro jigs and the Daiichi hooks on my site. www.eflytyer.com

Matt,

A quick search sent me to J-mac Lures, where they have Eagle Claw 570 Jig hooks with no bead down to size 12.
Jan's Netcraft has some down to size 8, also from Eagle Claw.

A little more research will probably reveal many more sources.

Where do you get those little jig hooks? I have never seen them in any fly tying catalog here in the USA.
