Thanks guys, the jigs were easy and fun but I can't say the same for the pictures. I got a whole lotta catching up to do.
Backlash, some of the chartreuse is bucktail but most of it is Unique Hair from the fly shop people. On the clown colored jigs I used white bucktail for the bottom and a little crystal flash or flashabou down the sides. On the blue/white, pink/white and white/white combinations it is Unique hair on bottom with pink and blue yak hair or white unique hair on top. The holograpahic braid down to the hook bend is acrylic ribbon found in a craftstore. It keeps the synthetic fibers from fouling as well as protecting them from teeth and providing some flash and simulating scales. I left it off on the all bucktail model in clown colors as it will be for freshwater stripers. AL
