Burnt Pinkies and Burnt Bluebacks
Tied on 1/16-oz. ball heads with #4 red Aberdeen hooks.

Strayed away from craft fur to use some lambswool and streamer hair. The lambs wool has a little burnt orange in its tips which I find interesting. Plan to try these out on the local reservoir crappie and white bass this spring.

Look great. Love the blue ones and I also like the rusty burnt orange tips!

Oh great.... another material i DON'T have - darn you Pup!!! Tongue Where did you get the L. Wool from?

Never really tried blue/white all that much - my pick would be the redneck one (bottom) for starters - but i DO know the redneck white with the burnt tips will produce! All are excellet ties.

Thanks AF. Smile Got the lambswool from a Wool Shop (TM) duster. Seriously, for about 2 dollars. Cool

You can find one at Old Tyme Pottery. Be careful though. This material absorbs water and sinks quickly. But, it has great action in the water. Works well beneath a float or retrieved. Just do not count on a slow fall from jigs made with it.

BTW, blue and white is a good color combo for white and yellow bass imo. Jig The red-necked (blue & white) one is my super special Patriot Jig. Wink

Those make for excellent shad immitations! I can't say I've ever heard of or seen lambs wool as a tying material but what you did with it looks great.

RE: Burnt Pinkies and Burnt Bluebacks
JJP,

My understanding is that the wool sinks readily. It absorbs water and holds much added water weight. This is the major reason that wool isn't very popular with fly fisherman. As a jig fisherman who uses spinning or casting gear, I don't mind this at all.

Thank you for your compliment on the ties. Smile
