Default Re: Jig Hook Paterns?

One of my favorites to tie on jig hooks is a Pink Squirrel (see Trout Unlimited - Pink Squirrel). This is an "in the round", beadhead nymph so it easily adapts to tying on a jog hook. As with many patterns, there are lots of variations. Many people use a reddish brown or dark brown dubbing for the abdomen and most now use pink dubbing, like UV Pink Ice Dub, for the collar. This works well as a lead /attractor fly while nymph fishing for trout. It's also a good panfish fly and a good ice fishing fly.

Also, I think PlanetTrout (see previous reply) is being too modest. There are a ton of great looking flies on his blog with many of them on jig hooks.

I used to run the state "pay-to-fish" ponds here in CT.
These ponds were loaded with aquatic worms (and huge trout)
Day after day the hot fly was always (always) a marabou jig fly fished under an indicator
Cast out, give it a twitch, let it sit.
The fly was as easy to tie as you might think ... jig head hook - marabou body/tail
The color made a difference though. It was a different color every day, but once you figured that out, you were golden.

I knew he was being modest because I have seen some of his ties! Thanks for the link to his blog. Hey planettrout, you've got a new follower in me!

Thanks guys !!!

I only put up my patterns on "What have you been tying today?"...linking back to my site, with patterns or any other postings, is a big NO-NO...

Used a lot in the Ozarks for trout, drifted under an indcator as you would a nymph. The green and yellow head does seem to make a difference.
