Belly spin rookie
Alright, I'm a little late, but finally got some swivels and blades to try this out.... I think I like it! Thoughts? Do it tie the swivel in right at the head or a turn or two of chenille back like this one?

Awesome tye - great lookin jig

I tie mine right up to the neck and I don't use chenille.

Like to use roller swivels and butt rings.

No worries j53, that's why we are here.
For some reason I can't get bit on a 1/24th right now.

I like to squeeze the eye of the swivel - making it oval - before putting it on the hook. I've tried squeezing the eye after it is on the shank - think it's easier to do it before.

I like to tie mine as close to the head as I can. It's a matter of what works for you! See firetiger posting down 6 or 7 postings, third picture. i also like willow blades but again that's personal likes. Good lookin tie!!

Good looking tie. Thinking of trying a few of those myself. Just curious, what size swivel, blade, jig head are you using there?

Thanks, that helps me narrow it down. I was kind of thinking it was smaller than the stuff I have on hand. Dodgy Oh well another order to send off or an excuse to go shopping..... Big Grin
