So the higher the number, the thicker the chenille?

It don't work that good Texboxer, Each kind of chenille has there own way to do it. With a lot of the new types the core of it may be 3-10mm with a 10-20-or even 50mm stand out. You guys who does not understand this need to get Skip to tell you about it. He works with more kinds than most people and has a good understanding of it. The reason for them not being the same is they all have their on use.

If it's Danville chenille which most is and even talking about New Age chnenille which is just some Rayon or Nylon chenille with Crystal added in. We have done that for a long time, but then someone started calling theirs New Age when it just regular chenille with crystal. All their sizes go from 00 to 12 and yes the larger the number the larger the chenille. Some places just call their small medium and large, which is just what they assigned size to it, but at Danville they have a number attached that tells size. They do not put all these names on the different colors other than the color name itself. All these names shops call a chenille is just a name they gave it, much like my Baitfish chenille, I gave it that name because it made me think of Baitfish! Most of the chenille I just call it what it is, but I do have a few like Junbug that I named it what I was trying to copy in soft plastic. However if you want some Purple and Gold, that is what I call it.

Other brands have a completely different way of telling size, like Estaz, they have a Petite, Standard and Grande. Petite I have never had in my hand so don't know, but Standard is 15mm and Grande is 30mm which if huge and high cost, but Estaz even covers the cotton core with Mylar so it's very different!

Others that are larger come as long hackle or something like that. I have some of that as well and come from Hareline. This kind come in one with 15mm hackles and then the large is something like 1 1/4" or 1 1/2" long hackles.

Then you have the stuff like Ultra Chenille or Velvet Chenille with a whole other kind of sizing. I am sure that are even more and I do even have more kinds, LOL!

For you guys that is getting started in jig tying now is the time to build up the supply. I was looking at Robert's stuff a few days ago as am beginning to need a few things. To add the clearance items on most times the freight is about the same. His chenille is very low in price and even color you may not use ever day is a good way to go. He also has some 3D eyes on that be worth while pick up some sizes that is once in a while in need. Everyone should have some Guinea feathers around just to try out on new ideals. It does cost a lot of money to have what you need when you need it. This is a great way to save a lot and try out some new things plus the saving on all of the old stuff.
Any time you check out Robert's site don't for get to look the plastics over. The Lil Rascals is as good as it gets in its size. And a size I use a lot when the water goes to cooling off.

Larry I love the Guinea and have tied a lot of them, but not in a while. My favorite was one I called the wing jig, maybe a pic is in order because it's hard to just describe.

Sorry for the quality of this image, but it was taken so long ago it was before my last camera so was probably a still taken with a camcorder, LOL! Anyway here it is. It was also long enough ago I didn't hand file each head that needed it and you can see that awful that knot on the front of this head! Must have been 9 or more years ago, LOL!

For this you cut a V and tie it right flat on top of the shank. I also added some Sofex to the feather near the stem both on top and underneath. My thinking there is maybe it will keep both tips separate.
It's a little hard to tie that flat on top and keep it straight, but not all that bad.


If Robert has some specials you guys should get some if it's something you like! There is no end to how much of how many materials you will want!

That's a nice looking jig, did you ever put that out? I have been messing with Guinea feather for a long time and have had some to fish but not sale. But they make a pretty jig

As I am new to tying, in what way is the #5 best utilized. In other words, is it better to use with larger hook sizes and heavier heads (#4 or #2 hooks, 1/8 oz)? I generally only tie 1/16 oz and smaller, but sometimes you need a larger bait due to high winds or fishing deep water. Any advice is much appreciated.

Chris

Chris,
Yes the ones you mentioned will work fine with #5. You could use 1/16 as well.
