Created a couple of jig trailers recently with the use of leather and craft foam.  The design is simple.  It's simply a square of pebble-grained leather with dog ears and a tongue for the hook bend.  Craft foam is glued to the leather using E6000 adhesive.  It's my hope that these jigs will produce some pretty good action with a lift/drop or a hopping retrieve.  Even a slow, steady retrieve with, maybe, a pause now and then might work well with this combo.

Used the green foam for buoyancy and, hopefully, as an attractant.  I look forward to fishing these to see if they will work well on largemouth bass.
