The first jigs I tied for fresh water were just like those 1/32 #6s - brown painted head and plain brown marabou. Caught my first ever stream trout on one then a few other small bows, brooks, browns. The jigs indeed seemed to have a sideways darting action when twitched.
those are some nice jigs..like to have some black jigs...Would it offend you if i tried to copy them? Seems like some people get mad and try to sue you when you do that....but those are nice looking jigs,
Those are some really good looking jigs. When I was a beginning tyer I had that mold and the shad dart mold and could not tie on them very well. Sold many molds that I wish I still had. At that time I had no idea what hackle was!! Those are great !
