    Default Proven jig pattern

    I've tied many flies for crappie on jig heads and bead headed fly hooks but to no avail return to jig heads and micro bodies.
    Who has a pattern of a tried and true hand tied jig pattern?

    Don't overthink it. A simple chenille body and marabou tail will catch crappie anywhere in the country.

    It's just a wooly bugger without the hackle.

    Welcome to the site and board!

    Some of my favorites are these and can be done on a regular round head jig too!

    One of the patterns that is alway# on my line or in my box is a gray ghost, or a slight variation. Bare leadhead, gray or silver body and a gray maribou or hackle tail with no more than a couple of pieces of flashy stuff of your choice. All the colors already suggested work well also but this is a proven winner for me, from 1/64oz and up.

    I'll go back to the wooly bugger. My guess is that at least 90% of the WB's sold in the US are either solid black or solid olive.

    Likewise, if you just go with solid white and solid chartreuse for crappie, you'll be covered in most situations. Throw in a few color variations if you like, but I just don't think you need 47 different colors/styles to catch crappie.

    I agree that wooly buggers mimics minnows,leeches or pupa/lava in lakes/streams. Colors minimal.
