    grumpy i tie preacher style. several hackles on the tail ,several tie in with bucktail [hollow tie] .just thinking that shorter tips and craft hair would work on smaller 1/32aand 1/16

    Don’t know why I got a triple post for this but here we go!

    This is what I pull up for preacher head. Is this what you’re talking about? Do you like craft hair? I have it but seems to get tangled like no other for me.

    That’s a pretty jig. Mine are mostly basic and unpainted.
    Listen to your gut over all the other voices.

    Same here with the Craft Fur, it really works well, but tangled together is a mess! So I prefer real Hair/Fur over Craft Fur. Know some use it a lot and know one guide that ties his own uses that Craft Fur all the time.

    Like the looks of the jig, but a little on the long side for Crappie so need trimming, lol!

    I stick with feathers and hair for my little jigs, but that preacher jig is out of my league it really looks neat.
