    Default Super tiny jig!

    Based on a comment by LazyCody on a thread I started, "Smaller is best?", I decided to try out tying some 1/80 oz jigs. After all, I had just finished my homebuilt rotary vise. And ordered my first materials. My plans are to tie (practice tying) my own Crappie/Bluegill type jigs. So LazyCody spurred me to think about 1/80oz jigs.

    My first impression...... Dad gum, they're tiny! The jig head is the size of a BB. The whole jig is just over 1/2" long.
    I'm guessing, I will be downsizing the materials for tying these.

    The vendor had super fast delivery.

    They will work fine for pan fish, I use 1/64 and 1/80 for blue gill. Just bent the hook up a little.

    Fine time to bring it up, what size thread will you be using? If it’s 140 or 210 it will fill up fast.. might try a thread neck first, and keep the thread closer to the head. I use 70 on the small stuff, and be aware that it will break easy compared to the others. Good luck, I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
    Listen to your gut over all the other voices.

    Skeetbum,
    Already figured I'd have to downsize. On everything!
    As far as 70 denier breaking easy, it can't be any worse than the fuzzy thread I've been playing with! I actually like the look of thread neck jigs I've seen on here.

    I've done the "bend hook up" trick for some time.... But these will definitely need that done.

    I've gotten some heads from that same fella - always been happy with my orders.

    and yes, those are tiny! I look forward to seeing what you come up with!
