New Color Combo
I tied this color last week and my brother in law in Jersey said that it was a killer for flounder.The flounder are moving in guys.Season starts middle of May.Painted the heads watermelon with some Fl. yellow sprinkled on the bottom.Olive upper tail with a thin sprig of Fl. yellow on the bottom.Beige thread body.I used a drop of Super Glue for the eyes.Going to see if they stay on without the clear nail polish.They look better this way.Whatcha Think ??

Looks great az. I was crappie fishing yesterday morning and I noticed I had a 3D eye on my hand. It had come off of a walleye head that I had sealed with Hard As Nails. I might start trying super glue myself.

RE: New Color Combo
Ahhhh - i like it! Olive back and light colored belly - that could represent lord knows hows many fingerling bait fish! Cool Jig

I know you are worried about those eyes...... but do you seal your thread? I have given my bucktails and craft fur jigs a coat of polish over the thread for awhile now. Extra insurance from possible toothy critters and gives the thread a little of a shine/slime coat look. : Co-Founder

I have been using cheap, thick sewing thread for these bucktails.I put a lot of clear nail polish on them.It sucks it right down to the hair.You can do a lot of tugging on that thick thread,lol.After I let them sit a day or so,I clear them again before I put them away.I really like that color combo.Thanks guys.

Another traditional super strong thread for big buckies is E or even heavier EE rod guide wrap thread. A jig maker in WA I know uses upholstery thread which is available with gloss colors.
