I've tried a few skunk ties and a few off the wall ties and would like your honest feedback!

This I'm calling Glimmer Minner

Great looking jigs!

On the Bubblicious Sexy Minner you could try tying in your pink and wrap it w/ thread all the way to the back and then wrap the thread back to the head. Then wrap your blue and tie it off. After that, pull your pink the the front and tie it off behind the jig head. This will hide your thread where you tied in the pink at the back of the jig.

All that being said, the fish don't care about the thread being visible. They would eat that regardless!

Yes just take a piece of the pink chenille and tie it in right after the tail is in and before the Blue chenille and just leave it hanging off the back. The tie in the Blue and warp it back to the head and just before you finish pull the Pink back over to the head and tie it in and finish.

Some times it helps to use a smaller size for the add on for ease and looks.

Sorry for the short sharing above but had to be some where but got it done. I first learn of this type of tying about 1881 when we were testing a new product called flashabou. A guy from Mississippi told me about it and I still use it on my jigs but not to sell as its to slow and to much trouble. You can use chenille, legs, flash are what ever to get the look you want. And as you bring the body wrap forward you can go ever other turn are all the way on top what ever it takes to get the look. What I like to do is use say a number 3 chenille for body run some number 2 white or grey for belly, run a black fizz type on top for spine, maybe some blue and pink leg material beside black for shad color. Both fun to tie and fish, and a good way to put flash into cheap chenille on the body.
