Okay for years I tied jigs using Fl Yellow with Blue Crystal in it, but I got to thinking maybe if there was just a little less Crystal in it, how would that look? Well I am sure you have seen one of my jigs with Blue Crystal before, but will show again to compare. Now I also realized I should have probably tied this using a Blue tail, but I didn't so please just look at the chenille.

First the older one...


Then the new one... Uh, before anyone ask the head is unpainted!

They both will catch fish, but I like the looks of the first one better.

Thanks guys! One other thing to consider is the new one is more dense.

I like both too and that is part of the problem. I do think the Blue shows a little better in hand on the new one and the other does have extra flash, but also not so sure that is always a plus.

Both very nice. There is so much you could do with either chenille, but as far as preference, I think I'd go with the top one. BTW, I think painted heads don't really matter.

Ditto! I think you got the tail just right too Skip! Right now anyway, that "All Flo. Yellow" look is HOT!! That slight glimpse of blue crystal is nearly overlooked so it's LIKE all flo. yellow.

Almost, but the Blue does show well enough I think, but the Fl Yellow is for sure dominate and that is how I ordered it. That is the only difference in the 2. I have had this stuff for over a year and never have showed it. Also have some with other combo's like Fl Yellow/FL Green and Blue Crystal. Then I have some with FL Green and Purple Crystal that is like the bottom on here, just with different colors, lol!

I sure wish I could shop all of your jigs and tying supplies online Skip. I wouldn't hesitate to buy from a guy with your knowledge and talent.
