Default Making Jigs while it rains

Strep throat and lots of rain is keeping me home and very bored. Decided to take advantage of the down time and get the jig making stuff out. Started with a few Schlappen with tails of various material.



Went on to make a few with beads.


Few more...


And dont forget the plastics..


Cant wait till the water comes down to get them wet . Anyone else doing any production during the down time? Lets see some picture of your Jigs or other projects. buhbuhfish

Do you catch steelys on the plastics that have no feathers? Just wondering if that works, having never tried it! the jigs look great to!

Prednisone for a very swollen throat makes me very grumpy and not very sleepy. I got sent to my craft room .

I have only tried the plastics a couple of time. Nothing yet but I am determined to give them more of a shot this year. They look fishy to me...

Wow, they're beautiful! If this happened with strep throat and rain you could go commercial with a bad back and snow. Really I hope you get better soon and I hope the jigs catch BIG fish.

Those are the nicest homemade selection of jigs that I can ever remember seeing on Ifish!!! I guarantee the two worm tail plastics on the left will produce.

Nice jigs and an excellent way to make a rainy day better. They all look good. Those with the trailing hackle feather will really have a nice swimming action.

Question:
Does anyone or has anyone tried to tie a MOAL Articulated Rabbit Leech pattern jig? The trailing hackle does somewhat imitate a leech. Also, adding a paddle-tail pink worm tail section does too.

Good luck

Are those Hematite beads you are using? I use them also and have even powdercoated them.

Here's some rainy day jigs I tied recently with Beadchain eyes.

You are right on. The beads are Hematite. Got a string to try at the local bead store. About 40 beads on a string for less than 5 bucks. I really like the shiny dark gray color. They are a nice weight and seem to get the jig down quickly. Those bead chains are an awsome idea. Where did you find the strings of beads? I posted this thread because I knew other folks would have some great ideas I had not thought of and that is a good one.

The heavy bead chains are not easy to find. Check the local craft stores in your area. The ones pictured came from a Johann's fabric store.
That is where I get my Hematite beads from as well.

It's amazing how these jigs are becoming more and more similar looking to winter steelhead flies. The MOAL is actually a fly pattern.

Same with the bead chain eyes, been used on flies for decades. Maybe I should tie up an "intruder jig" and post it on here tomorrow. Sort of similar to this just a smaller version, maybe with a touch of marabou.

That's a killer looking fly you tied there. Nice job.

I'm sitting at home, tying jigs, watching the rain and the Apple Cup.

GO DAWGS


I'm tying the only 2 jigs I'll ever need, the Mikey jig and the Splatter Back.
I have over 200 twitchin jigs for my late season coho. This weekend and next week should be money.........if the rain stops for a few hours.

Spent part of today trying my hand at tying jigs for the first time. Came out better than expected, but it'll take awhile til I'm at the level of buhbuhfish or flyjunky!

2nd one down in the middle row. Wooly worm with the pink tail. That looks like a fish catcher to me. All look very nice.

neat little tip...rubber eggs seem to grab onto silicon legs so with a needle with a heavy enough gauge, you can thread eggs onto a silicon "leg" and then tie them into a jig as I did with those bunny patterns.

I have a unique way of rigging pink worms, one that I think lead to a near perfect hook up ratio last year...if Geo posts the recipe or gets a better pic of his splatterback, I'll post the instruction for my worm rigging!

Sorry, the double negative in that second sentence makes it highly unlikely that I will show the Mikey Jig.
There has to be a cost for poor grammar.

OK, here it is. It can probably still be found on Alaska Kingfisher website. Bob Kratzer calls it the jig of jigs.

Black head/ 1/8th ounce

Couple long pieces of flashabou tail.

Green crosscut wabbit back half

Pink/fushia crosscut wabbit front half.

simple simon......catches fish even in low clear water. Deadly for Nates on the OP.

this is the only pic I have................

Yep, pretty simple & turns out to be a nice looking little jig.
"Jig of jigs"... I'll give it a try for sure and see if these southern Oregon slime rockets like it. Thanks

Love the black and white bead jig. Black and white is under used, but my favorite.

I really like your rabbit hair creations. Nice job. I'll take a dozen when you get time. All of them look good. Those with the Glo Bug yarn will hold scent real nice for a while.

I'm a dedicated pink worm drifter and just recently picked up on a real neat tip to keep the worm straight on the leader -single hook rigged.
And now, I'd be interested in hearing how you rig a pink worm.
Cough it up. Old dogs can learn new tricks.
