Poisontail for Hair Jigs!
« on: 04/11/20 15:24 UTC »
These are my most recent jigs. White hair jigs, tied on Do It Poisontail heads in 1/4, 3/8 & 1/2 oz. all powder coated white. Clear fiber weed guards. 5/0 Gamakatsu hook.

They're tied with a combination of bucktail and Arctic Fox tail hair, plus some silver flash.

I use Danville flat nylon thread. The heads are clear coated with 2 ton epoxy to help keep the eyes in place, and seal the thread wraps. Plus it adds a little extra durability to the finish.

These jigs are being sent to Japan to one of our military service members.

Thanks for the compliments!  :D

Les, he paid for them, but I give discounts to our military and first responders. I don't generally ship internationally, but will make exceptions for our military.

He mentioned that he does some tournament fishing, so hopefully, they'll serve him well.  :D
