Tied Stingers
I have been hearing alot about people using baits similar to the stinger shad, crappie stingers and slab bandits... they are pretty much a grub body with a thin single tail. Thought i would give a shot at making my own. I used the yarn to build up the top and bottom of the jig to give it some-what of a shad profile. I thought they turned out decent, need to play around with a few more colors.

1/32 oz.
Hide from chart. zonker strip
Craft Yarn Body - chart. & silver

   

The zonker hide was the left overs after trimming the hair off for some smaller jigs. I have a hard time throwing away my scraps. Big Grin I also have some edge trimmings off of whole rabbit hides i have zonker cut myself that i am going to try and trim into craw pinchers... winter time project.

RE: Tied Stingers
Very neat AF. Like the body weave too. Did you use your chenille bobbins to do it? I bet they would come in handy for this!

RE: Tied Stingers
That's a killer,heard the trimmed rabbit makes great tails with good movement. This proves it.

RE: Tied Stingers
Scott & JJ1 - Thanks! Smile Hope to get out and throw them at some fish before my water gets 'crusty' on top. Undecided

RD - Thanks. Did not use the bobbin... I have waaaaaaay too many colors of chenille and this yarn for how many 'deep' spools i have made. I have cut 6 spools so far and loaded them with my favorite chenille colors. Need to find someone with a wood lathe to make me about 30 spools... think i am getting carpal tunnel from trying to cut them by knife and sandpaper!!!! Beat-up Boss is starting to wonder why i am always hiding in the back room too. HaHa!!!!
