Pepper Heads & A "Flying V" Trailer

Pepper Heads & A "Flying V" Trailer
Painted and tied several "pepper"-headed jigs last weekend. Fine black glitter mixed with a clear powder coat works well for a "black spot" effect. Fish likely won't care, but I think that it looks interesting. It's simple and fun to do. All jigs weigh 1/8 of an ounce and have #2 bronze hooks.

Next up is my "Flying V" jig trailer. It's simply a "V" cut from a piece of supple brown leather and trimmed to form a tongue that overlaps the hook point. Two projecting appendages provide action behind the hair of the jig. Photos follow that should show you what I mean. Smile

Used craft foam to supply the trailer a little 'lift' when wet. Originally, I thought about gluing the two pieces together and then onto the leather. However, the idea of using needle and thread seemed appealing to me since I would be gluing with Fabri-Tac which requires thorough room ventilation. I did not want to leave the windows open, so this is my result. Black upholstery thread works well if you are careful with your knots. You might notice that I pinched a corner of foam off as I cinched down on my knot. Sad All in all, I don't believe that this trailer turned out badly for my first try. Though, the fish will let me know one way or another... Wink

Really cool craft fur jigs, favorites are the orange/black ones. Flying V is a winner as well.

Excellent work. The green head with the lighter tails have a cool contrast. The floating V tail will give an awsome profile and bet it gets attention. : Co-Founder
