Hair jigs

Hey ya’ll

 

This winter I’m interested in making some hair jigs. Wondering if anyone has some experience with this and what equipment I need to have for this. Can you tie the hair with the weedguard on or does it have to be removed? Any tips welcome.

These are the ones I have started making.  Now I can't tie so a buddy of mine ties the hair for me.  These are just sparkie heads that I added a FG12 weedguard pin to in a spincast mold.  I glue the weedguards in last because its easier to tie them without the weedguard in.

I tie marabou  and hair jigs without weed guards.  I'm not a big fan of most weed guards anyway.  I trim them back significantly from how most skirted jigs come.  On the jigs  I tie I use jigs without them.

 

I think that adding them after the tie is the way to go if you need them.  I don't see how to easily tie with them in place.

It's funny that you asked about tying with a weed guard on.  I just finished my first attempt at doing so.  It didn't turn out bad, but it was a bit tricky wrapping the thread around. I secured the hair with 70 denier and finished the wrap with 210. The thicker thread gave the finished wrap a much more uniform look. The next time I order jig heads from Siebert, I'm asking Mike to not glue the weed guards in place. I'll do it after I tie them up.
