Fly to a Jig
Thought I would try this fly pattern but add a jig head. RonDon makes the perfect head for this!

RE: Fly to a Jig
I stumbled across that on ohio fly tying site also. Since I did not have any bohemian chenille I tried using ultra chenille and came up with a small black leech. Will post pix of my " leechey " creation. Right now enjoying my morning coffee and nothing gets done until 3rd cup is down the hatch.

I do believe the unusual use of the chenille opens up a new jar of possibilities. After tying my " leechey " I experimented with a couple styles of " minner " imitations. THey turned out not so hot but I did order some of that bohemian stuff to play with. I plan on tying both weighted and unweighted versions to play with. Would think they would produce on crappie if tied in the 2-2 1/2
overall lengh range.

Len - That ther Ron Don guy he shore do make some useful stuff don't he ? By the way love the way your jig turned out .

Len,

Nice adaptation of a fly pattern. I really like your result. Your jig looks very good to me. Icon14 Cool

Number 5 and 6 chenilles are interesting to work with I think. Use them a lot for my bass jigs. I sometimes wonder if fashion designers ever consider that their end product might be used in the design of fishing lures. Huh Jig Wink

Very cool tie. I'm going to have to play around with this technique for sure. Nice job.
