I have not posted in a while and was hoping my next post would be about finally becoming a boat owner! This was not to be on this day! I was inside all day and cabin fever struck bad when I watched an Infisherman and watched Doug Stange and the boys catching big river smallies on hair jigs. I busted out the jig tying gear and went to work.
I figured that I needed some brown and oranges to simulate craw patterns. Here is what I came up with. The first few the orange looked separate and I wanted to achieve the look of the orange coming out the back of the jig like a tail. I started to get the hang of it on the bigger jigs. I still think these will work and may even get out tomorrow for my first winter trip to The Fox River. I will keep you posted.
I hope that my quest for a boat will be over soon and will report back when my vessel is purchased. Here are my jigs, see what you think!!!!
