A BIG thank you goes out to gar1970. Leo and I did a deal on some flies and he sent some jig heads along so I could get started tying while I get a more complete set up wrapped up. Well I tied up a mess and headed for my favorite crappie house on Lake Buchanan this past Monday. A cold front was barreling in full force and dropped the temps from 69 that morning into the mid 40s by the time I was fishing and the wind was howling out of the north. Anyway my hand ties outdid plastics 28 to 1 between me and my partner and that's not including dinks and non target species. White and chartreuse was the color combo of the day in both a marabou tail and hackle tip tail. Black and chartreuse also scored a few fish as well; two solid crappie came on pearl white with a dark blue marabou tail.

A few examples of the crappie. Most were solid fish in the 12 to 14 and 1/2 inch range

Then there were the "other" fish. Like this white bass

And one very lost and very small Rio. Had no idea they were in Buchanan until a couple of weeks ago.

Thanks again Leo. Now I have to order a lead pot and burner to get pouring my own heads. Definitely hooked on what hand ties are capable of producing.

Your welcome Eirik! I'm glad our trade worked out great for the both of us. Thank you for the flies, they are works of art cheers
It is a great feeling catching fish on something you make yourself, It gives you such a confidence boost I believe it makes you a better fisherman.
Those are some nice jigs you caught those fish on. Good job, solid post
