Bottom-Walking Brownie

Tied this one up this evening on a 'Lead Free Jigs' Custom Hooksup Jig.  It's a natural for this design.  This jig should slide along gravel bottoms like a 'sled'.  Its head shape is perfect for Tulip Paint Eyes.  Can't wait to fish it next year. :)

Updating Old Lures

Ever tie onto an old lure?  My Dad did, quite frequently, whenever he wanted to replace a skirt or tail that wasn't readily available.  I have a small collection of spinners and spinnerbaits that he modified.

Thought I'd carry this forward by updating an old no-name bass popper that was laying inside of a vintage tackle box.


More to come on the jig front shortly.  Have a great holiday season.
