Pepper Heads for Smallmouth Bass
I'm going to try my level-headed best to get out and fish for smallmouth bass next week. So, in preparation for that, I tied a few jigs this evening.

Three-sixteenths of an ounce on #1 hooks. I plan to trail a Baby Guido Bug behind the brown and orange ones and a Falls Minnow behind the black-n-gray. Actually, the black-n-gray jig weighs about 1/4 of an ounce and has a 1/0 hook.

Worked with some black-colored NST glitter to create pumpkin pepper and silver/gray pepper heads.

My black-n-gray jig just might imitate a minnow with "black spot disease". Wink

Tied a few more Friday evening. Added a little flash to some sage-colored ties with pepper heads as well as another black-n-gray.
