I use to tie a lot of jigs with Guinea, but I just don't see that being used now. Here is a pic of some I did 10 years ago. I use to catch a lot of fish on the Guinea. Tried to find one of my wing jigs using Guinea, but have not yet.

Those look good Skip. Did you look in the bottom cabinet on the left? That's probably where they are. Ha!


I would rather fish than eat and I stay hungry all the time.

I've never used them but those look awesome......


Jigging; it's faster than chasing a minner in a bucket!

I believe most places sell packs of them. I also have some Chart in bulk so maybe if someone wanted some I could help out. I am nt sure if I have any packs right now, have to look, but can get them if someone wants. Just would need to place an order, but I kind of need to anyway.

I will try to find my wing jig, I had a lot of fun with it. I cut a big V out of a Guinea feather and then tie the quill right on top of the shank of the hook. I also used some Softex to make it really durable and to hold it's shape. I put the Softex a long each side of the quill and out just a little to hooks all that in place. Then a marabou tail I think? My memory needs to find that pic, lol!

Thank you guys! By all means if you have some use them. They can be used in a lot of ways, tails, collars, cheeks. I just love the colors and all the dots of different sizes.

I use them as bug wings or bluegill gill flaps on some of the flies I tie. I usually use real fur on jigs like this.

Made from real skunk fur.

But Here is a crawfish fly I tied where I used Guinea feathers for the claws.

I love em
