tying feathered trebles

Recommended Posts

I want to tie some feathered trebles for my Spook Jr's.

Any advice for materials to get. Type of feathers (or any other material), thread, finish to protect the thread.

I have a vise I use to tie bass jigs already.

Very simple. Some crystal flash and saddle hackle. For thread, UTC 140 or something similar. And for a finish, most tyers are using UV resin these days. Check out the Loon Flow. It would be perfect for coating the thread wraps.

Try not to get too carried away. One pack of flash and one pack of hackle or deer hair will be enough to tie a lot of trebles.  I have more than enough materials to do all of my top waters and jerkbaits several times over.

If you can find them, white chicken feathers. Everything already recommended is solid. I use fly tiers cement to secure my thread after completing the finishing knot.

Always been a fan of Kevlar for tying jigs and trebles.  Now I use 6# braid as I can get at the Sportsman show even cheaper and 250 yds lasts me about a year now.  As for coatings … a drop of superglue does just fine right before the whip finish.

I use Danville 140D Denier flat fly tying thread that is un-waxed, good quality saddle hackle, either a skin or strung, Flashabou and after tying the thread off, I finish the thread wrappings with Sally Hansen - Hard as Nails, in clear. Get a decent vice and a good bobbin and you will be ready to go.
