New color jig (for me)
« on: July 13, 2017, 09:55:19 AM »
I have been told, and have been reading, that the color crappie are biting on now is chartreuse with silver sparkles in it on a red head. So, I set out to try to make one to imitate that color combo.

My first attempt was not too good. I wrapped silver sparkle chenille around a trues body to get the sparkle.




That sucked, so I decided to try wrapping a flat holographic Flashabou spiral around a trues body. That might be a little better, but it still wasn't close enough.




Then i remembered buying some material called Flat Diamond Braid that is colored and sparkly. I checked to see if I had any trues, but didn't. However, I had some yellow. The material is an open weave that you can see through a little. So I figured that if I made a regular green under-wrap, and then over wrapped with the yellow flat braid, I might end up with something like chartreuse. I think this one matches the color of the plastic tail pretty well. I'll test it tomorrow to see if it works, and post the results.


I woke up this morning.  At my age, that is a GOOD thing!

I'm betting you'll get the bites.
