A Gift

Recommended Posts

Maybe Bassmaster Fred, who rarely has free time, will find some next spring to throw some hair at a smallie or two.

 

The box is a Plano 3607 with 1" foam in the bottom which is slit every 1/2". The 1/4" foam in the top will keep the jigs in place in a chop.

Nice looking jigs.  Do you have a favorite color for clear water?

Thanks, MickD.

 

I rely on brown and black. White has worked well too.

 

I'll be tying some olive for 2018.

In the rivers here, olive wooly buggers are, based on my experience, the best color for SM, and in Lake St Clair and Saginaw Bay, white plastics twitched off the bottom are very effective.  I've not used hair at all in the past, but will be doing it this next season.

 

A jig that has an entirely different action, and may be effective, is the "glider" jig used for bonefish fly/jigs.  I'll be trying a few of those, too.

 

I think that white in SB and LSC is so good because fish there are often found in schools, and when one is caught it often disgorges very white partially digested shad, which the other fish in the school eat.
