Contrast Jig

Contrast Jig
Tied this one solely with the idea of contrast in the body profile. Selected black, gray, and white colors. I do not know how this will look in water when jigged.

Used a 3/16-ounce ball head with a #1 hook and craft fur.

To me, it's a little like viewing a black and white television image. However, fish don't watch television. Wink

RE: Contrast Jig
Thanks for your comments Everyone. Smile

I finished tying my remaining gray heads this AM. Below are the two that I tied.

[Image: graymins004.jpg]

The top jig is reverse-shaded, i.e., white back, gray middle, and black belly. The bottom one is a "large profile" tie. I combined black, white, and gray fur along the hook shank. Though difficult to see in this photo, there is a mix of strands of each color along the entire length of the jig body. This particular jig might not move through the water as attractively as the others, but maybe it will lure in a larger Bigfish with its fuller profile. Wink
