This is a short story on how the jig came to Palisade.

While living in Kenosha,Wi. my buddy Steve's dad & his 3 other brothers would go to the pier to fish lake perch.
One day Steve's dad named Ace went alone to fish as he did when the boys were at school and he did not have to build cars for AMC.

Anyway Ace was out on the pier one day and he was not doing to well.
There was this old chinese guy ripping the perch hand over fist.
So Ace went over to ask this chinese guy what he was using.

The chinese guy held out his hand and in it he had this little hair jig.So Ace decided to start making them for himself & the boys.
Now fast forward a few years.The plant closes and Ace packs up the wife and kids to move to Palisade,Mn.

Many years later with the passing of Ace,2 of his boys still tie the jig. I had made friends with the 4 brothers and fished with 2 of them.
Having witnessed the jig in action I started to tie.

Now years later it is turning into a business and the jig needs a name so, after carefull review the top name so far with the blessing from the brothers is "Ace In The Hole".

To all of the locals it is still & will always be THE JIG.

I thought that it was this A.M. when I could not get into the forum.I thought after yesterdays banter with SF.

It's a cute story ,I figured it was worth explaining.
The name fits and the double meaning is cool.
