I keep getting requests from customers who got aquainted with hairjigs in central america so I spend some quality time on the matter.

It started with Tarpon Jigs, the guy was very specific about decent hooks.

[Image: 31565165yn.jpg]

[Image: 31565166an.jpg]

The peacock jigs start selling well so I finally moded a 3/4oz mold for 6/0 Mustad Steelhead hooks that will hopefully get a better grip around the their thick boney lip.  


[Image: 31565167xk.jpg]

With the blue crab I am still not sure. The pattern is rather time consuming. This is a tip-up with mono weed guard. Errecting the guard is easy against the plain edge of the lead head.   

[Image: 31565168nx.jpg]

I freely admit I stole this shrimp pattern from Buggs Fishing where I ordered some samples. They where very really thoughtful, threw in free glass cleaning tissues and wished me a nice vacation. Made me feel shabby.  Blush  

[Image: 31565170pw.jpg]


They say those goofy swim jigs look awkward but catch pompano. I know my fellow Germans, they will not put anything on the end of their line that doesn`t look like somebody gave a good thought about it. The paint is a two-coat base,  pearl with a 2.nd layer of clear, white UV and blue luxan, tapped with some copper luxan. Hope the UV pigment will make it visible enough in the surf without those goofy fluo colors.

Speaking of mole crab, I have never seen one in the flesh but from what I heard an usd wobble head should make a good imitation.

  Glow craft hair
Posted by: JUNGLEJIM1 - 01-17-2018, 02:39 PM - Forum: Tools & Materials - Replies (4)

I tie a lot of jigs with craft hair but one color I've never seen is glow in the dark. A product  made here in the states by seicrafts.com is a glow spray that you spray on materials, allow to dry and color sets permanently when put in the dryer. I followed the steps but put it in microwave for 30 seconds to set the color. Pictures of my glow craft hair were taken in day time indoor lighting. The circle you see on the craft hair is where I charged it with a flashlight and it's glowing . I'll tie some with it soon. Works with marabou as well but can't find the finished product at the moment. Also a few jigs from this morning.

This is just some of the jigs I've been playing with since all this cold weather hit. Jigs with metallic eyes I call aliens, plated heads with  Grizzly micro legs and more bunnys or craft hair. And a few Tailgunners.

Posted by: AtticaFish - 01-15-2018, 09:21 PM - Forum: Paintshop - Replies (8)

Have been painting up a few bigger heads to tie up for walleye jigs. A friend on another forum wanted some and told him i would barter some away.  Sure is fun to paint these flat side heads.  Lots of room to work.  Whole lotta glitter involved along with pearl pigments and mica powder.  The 2 'eyeball' heads were more for fun.  Will tie those up and keep them for myself.  Not sure if a walleye would want to eat... or be scared of..... a roaming, hairy eyeball.

  Trokar jig hooks
Posted by: JUNGLEJIM1 - 01-13-2018, 11:04 PM - Forum: Tools & Materials - Replies (2)

I used them quite a bit last year, only wish they made the jig hooks in a smaller size. You won't find a sharper hook and they are made here in the states. Tackle Warehouse is having a sale on them, 15 for $5. xx, about $.35 which is Gamakatsu prices in places. If they are still on sale I'm ordering more. Caught fish last year without setting hook and just turning the handle a couple quick turns. Anyone else use them?

I'm looking for a certain color someone might have just laying around. I believe it's called Kaleidoscope and I have a couple small pieces in  size 5 but would take  a smaller size. This is a hot, hot color for trout in California and I have a customer begging for it, wants 100 jigs and I'm out except for this. If anyone has some I'd buy it or trade for some.  I sent a piece to CAT about having a couple skeins made so might be able to replace the color when and if I get some soon. Thanks...

The bitter cold has sure set in and is making a nice base layer of ice.  Made it out on the early ice for a quick trip on Tuesday and will be getting out again this weekend.  This work thing sure gets in the way of my fishing.  Got an invite to hit up a private highway borrow pit this weekend though!  Monster bluegill and black nose crappie.  Have also been told there are perch and hope to see one of those on the end of my line as well.

My panfish ice box was a mess so went through and cleaned it out.  Have been making up some new stuff to replace old and lost baits.  The bead flies are all tungsten.  Added a couple new dropper spoons and left the drop longer than what i normally do.  These are about 4".  I used tungsten flies for the drop hook to hopefully help keep them from fouling.  The little jigs with dubbed body and hackle collar are probably my top producer for bluegill.
