V-Formation Jigs

Tied each of these using two schlappen feathers ahead of a chenille abdomen and suede leather tail.  They have the color combination of black, coral, orange, and emerald green flake.  I hope that they will catch a couple of bass or maybe a steelhead.

  • Coats & Clark Trilobal Polyester Machine Embroidery Thread 40-wt. - coral
  • Eagle Claw 1/8 Ball Head Jig JB0018U
  • Rosey's Powder Paint - mandarin orange
  • Harbor Freight Powder Paint - matte black
  • Rosey's Clear Coat High Gloss 100% mixed with emerald green extra-fine glitter
  • Tulip Puffy Paint - green glitter
  • Tandy Leather Factory Suede Remnant - black
  • Lion Brand 'Lion Suede' Yarn - ebony
  • Flymasters (WAPSI) Barred Schlappen - fl. fire orange
  • Clear nail polish

I may add some pieces of Darice Craft Foam to the tails for flotation to help with tail movement in the water.  If so, I'll glue them to the tails with E6000 Craft Adhesive.
