I tied this one up, instead of my dual wrap. I really like this one

Nice jig! There is another jig tier that has a bumblebee jig that I copy, but he uses black and regular yellow variegated chenille and regular yellow feathers for the tail.

I like both his and yours.

Just curious have you looked at the bumblebee patterns that the fly tiers do?

Nice looking jigs. Bumblebee is a good jig for South Louisiana waters.

OK Grizz, I tried to find a picture of a 1/16oz, but all I had was this 1/32oz. one. Anyway it should give you an idea of what I mean. I like the hair mix on slab_slayer1's jig and I think maybe add some yellow/black hair to my feather tail would be nice.

I will be in your area next week Willfish. I got to go to Batesville one day and work. I may try to work early and fish in the afternoon at the spillway. We may have to try and meet up. I might even tie up 4 or 5 of your favorite colors and just let you try'em. I will PM you when I figure out my schedule for the week of 2/12-2/16 and maybe we can get together and fish a little or I might just buy you dinner at Como. I ate there the other night and was very impressed.
