    Default Getting smaller

    The two in the middle are the smallest I've tied I think, ever. Not sure how fast they will sink but something should like them.

    Again, guessing weights, middle two maybe 1/64 on a size 8 or 10 sickle
    The other 4, 1/32 or close and a #6 sickle maybe? I can't find the size chart I made so I am sorry about the crazy estimates. If you can tell me what they might be I can try to remake my charts.

    Can't tell you what sizes they are but I'm pretty sure they will draw the thump to your line. Good job.

    All I will say is I would not cut the natural ends off any of my hackle or marabou!

    Sorry, marabou is hard for me to tie that small, if I had green hackle I'd be set.

    If you are tying a normal size jig use the Blood Quills or the Select Quills, but for small jigs that Mini stuff is perfect and should make it easy for you to tie small! Just to show you I will post my one feather jig again, this is a 1/32 Oz Roadrunner which is a pretty small jig, but could do the same thing with smaller regular jigs.

    All I did was tie the tip of the feather in as the tail then wrap it to the head, trap it, cut off excess end of the quill and finish!
