You can tye this style in a lot of different color combos and use various legging/arm material.

Been hesitant about posting this pattern because there are tyers out here that like to bootleg some of my patterns and sell them. Can't do anything about it - especially if it's put out on a web site...

RE: The Auto
Yeah, I was thinking the same thing about people stealing patterns and selling them... I was hesitant about putting my ghost minnows on here too, because they have been so succesful! I don't care if someone uses my patterns for themselves, but if they want to copy them and sell them, I think I should get a cut Wink
Those look really cool!! I'll have to try some of those!
I really like the very last pic you posted! That jig rocks! Thinner for a winner!

Ledhed.....have been using rubber shirts from BassPro. Have you seen any particular material that holds up better than others for the rubber shirts.
