Spider Sliders for Smallies

Tough to see the #2 gold hooks in this photo.

  • 1/8-oz. spider slider head with #2 hook.
  • Brown Disco eyelash yarn.
  • Brown nail polish with two-part epoxy for head finish.
  • Orange craft fur.
  • 40-wt. machine embroidery thread and 140 denier Ultra Thread - orange/fl. fire orange.

Baby Bass Jigs

Largemouth bass (LMB) can be cannibalistic. With that in mind, I tied the jigs shown below to represent LMB young-of-the-year. Included are a couple of red-eyed variants. Each is tied on a 1/4-oz. ballhead jig with a 1/0 hook.

May fish them for smallmouth bass too.

Electric Chickens for Bass

This article provides a good background on this popular color combination.

I tied a few jigs with this collor pattern exspressly for local bass recently. :)  Three photos of them will follow below.  I used eyelash yarn and #5 chenille for their tails and bodies, respectively.  The jig heads used weigh either 1/8 or 1/4 of an ounce.

All jigs pictured are a mutated form of Electric Chicken with the exception of my Ugly Bug for 2010 in the upper left of the first photo below.
