Micro chub jigs
I've been fishing these for 10 of the last 12 days at a park lake close to my home and have been having a blast catching bass, bluegill, crappie, catfish and big redears. The Redear have been averaging close to 11" and over 1 lb. Releasing everything so far but may keep a few soon. Warmer weather has the coontail moss growing and making it harder to fish. Been using micro chubs that weigh 1/80th on #10-#12 sickle hooks less than an inch long under a float. Tied  some extras this morning. Fish are prespawn mode now but a few are swimming in water less than a foot deep so it's getting close.

Yah, fish appear to be hungry, and lucky for your healthy populations. Unrelenting angler pressure here, worm and minner dunkers appear to have fished out walleye & trout at my favored spots.

Like your natural colors, what materials used for the tails?

Looks like a whiting grizzly soft hackle tail (chickabou). Cool stuff, very popular among sea run brown trout fly anglers here.

Some chickabou and grizzly marabou that I had dyed seal brown were used for tail and some #0 chenille body. It rained Thursday so didn't fish. Went yesterday and they moved up and are bedding now. Clear water makes it tough since they are in water less than a foot deep. Caught a few and released them. Going to let them do there thing for a few days and try to find some pre spawn fish at other lakes.

Those are sweet Jim. Been trying my hand at the small stuff but 1/64 is as brave as I get. Gotta dig out the p/p stuff, still buried since moving south.

I went there early this morning. O Redear but bluegill were bedding and biting so had some fun before it got too hot. Caught 3 channel cats up to about 3 lbs on these little jigs.

A 3lb whisker trout on a rod light enough to cast those had to be a hoot.
