No Trailers Required

Created these tonight using brown Disco eyelash yarn and orange craft fur.  Each is tied on a 1/8-ounce ball head jig with a #2 Aberdeen hook.

This is one of my favorite "craw" color patterns for smallmouth bass.

Super Leech II

Here's another Super Leech tied with orange craft fur and brown Disco yarn.

I hope to fish this one in the local river for smallmouth bass.  This sure looks like a big fish bait to me.

Super Leech

It measures about 5 inches long.  Tail is tipped with black-colored Darice Craft Fur.  Body is Bernat Disco Eyelash Yarn palmered over the bungee cord rubber strip that is tied onto the hook shank.

Jig head is a 1/8-ounce ball head with a #2 bronze Aberdeen hook.  The head is painted with matte black Harbor Freight powder.

Just For Grins - If I Had Sponsors Like A Professional Fisherman...

Who might they be?  This is a list of companies producing jig tying tools that I really like.  See any surprises here?

Red Worms

Tied on 1/8-ounce ball head jigs with #2 hooks.  Used a chenille print yarn made by Lion Brand.  The color is called canyon.

The jigs are nearly 6 inches long.  I feel that these may make pretty good river bass or walleye baits.

Pup's Super Fluke

It's not a jig or a fly per se. I tied this with Rozetti Velvet chenille, pink craft fur, and a strip of 1/8" wide bungee rubber.

The hook is an Eagle Claw 249WA-1/0. It rides with its hook point down. I use this style of hook when fishing soft plastic flukes for river bass.

This fluke is pretty light, but should gain some weight when wet. It measures just under 6 inches long.
