1st Time Tying Jigs
I tied some steelhead/trout jigs today and wanted to know what you all think of them. This is my first time doing this and I just copied what I normally buy from a local tackle shop. Let me know what you think. Also any tips/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Those look pretty good,really nice for a first timer.I like the marabou shorter in mine to eliminate short strikes.

Your off to a great start...When you get a little more into it ,find some head with out the collar,it will make your tying job easier,and wont have that barb protruding from the body.
