All three tied by me. Taking them this summer to BWCA. Last year caught on jigs similar to these. This year using a fly rod along with spinning rod.

Those look like the Crazy Charlie Bone fish flies I used to tie. I also have about 20 of these in a Clouser minnow pattern. They should be a good pattern for Smallmouth Bass.

Those should be the ticket! I am already dreaming of catching BWCA smallies on the fly! Maybe a good thing to break out the tying gear on these cold Minnesota nights!

Nice work. Plop those around some rock piles or brush piles and you should have some fun.

Those are brutes to cast though. I mostly fish topwater in June so I don't pretend to fish a ton of subsurface flies. But when I do, I find that a big nymph works as well as anything. I don't tie much anymore, instead buying Clouser nymphs.

Now I have some of these tied by flytyer and I am eager to use them this spring. I think they look less like a jig and pig and more like a mix of a wooly bugger/clouser/crayfish.
