Good looking jigs.....

Nice simple jigs and just what the crappie wants. I know I spend to much time with action, size and color, think he has a better idea. Good work Skip

Skip, have a tying question when you have the time. I am doing some 100 percent marabou jigs and on the body using some long cut feathers laying it over fishing line for the marabou chenille doing my turns to lock it in before wrapping on the hook. But am losing some feathers when water testing. Did you ever use any glue or the like to seal it? Are am I just not getting it tight enough? Thanks

Well I don't usually use marabou as chenille, but I have tied some small jigs using really small marabou and I just used the end for the tail and once I had that trapped well I move thread to the head and then I palmered the marabou feather to the head and tied it off.

Now for my tails I tear the barbules (feathery portion) off the stem and I stack them until I have enough for the tail. Then I pinch it where I want to cut it off even, then I tie it in.

If I didn't cover what your asking please try again, I did have a bit of trouble following what your doing.

Oh an the only time I use glue is when I finish.
