    Mike,

    Thanks for the kind words. They are very easy to tie, cast well, and best of all really catch fish. Here's a close-up photo of one I use for big Bluegill and Crappie.

    Thanks for the follow-up. I usually carry my 3wt for Bluegill and manage to catch some nice bass on it from time to time. I'll use my five wt or seven weights for the larger/heavier flies. I...

    David, Very nice fish! If you don't mind me asking, what size/wt jig head is that and what weight rod do you use to cast them? The ones I showed are tiny 1/124oz that I use for Bluegill and...

    Micro-Jig minnow

    This is a bit of a variation on a pattern that I've been using for going a bit deeper for big Bluegill. I tie them on size 10 1/124oz jig head hooks. Just a bit of rabbit fur for the tail, metallic...

    Jesse,

    It's good to hear from you. The only time I've used mono weed guards is on some streamers and heavily weighted flies. These little jig heads seem to do fine without them. I hope that you...

    Lastchance,

    For these little jigs, I use either 1/8" or 5/32" eyes. These eyes are self-sticking, but it's only good for positioning them on the jig head. They will need a coat of epoxy. If you...

    Now that cooler weather has arrived, I've been fishing a bit deeper for the Bluegill. I tied up a number of this pattern that works well for me. I tie it on 1/124oz jig heads with a bit of rabbit fur...

    Dave, I bought the micro-spine starter kit and the tying brushes, but I am curious how you got the olive color just on the top of your pattern? I use dubbing brushes a lot in my tying but when...

    Thanks Dave. Living in the south, the bass and bluegill tend to get larger because of the longer growing season.
