Hey Led Head...those are fabulous looking jigflies and I am going to try some of those patterns in my home waters. Great job!!
Comment by LedHed on October 22, 2009 at 2:44pm
These jigs are mostly 1/32nd with #8 VMC hooks down to 1/100th with a #12 VMC hook. The majority of these patterns catch 2+lb. Bluegill. This batch was sent to Bruce.

I haven't looked back through the other examples, but LedHed has shared the peacock herl 1/100th oz and it has everything I like in a jig. Thank you for sharing LedfHed. Illinoisgiller aka ole giller

1/100th BG jigs. VMC #8 hook. Spun hackle tail/neck, peacock herl body.

Hello, everyone! I've been tying/using a brown-hackled peacock variant lately. I put on a red bucktail... tail, and chop it off at the same distance as the hook gap. Typically, on a #10, the tail is around 3/16" and only has a dozen or so hairs in it. Doesn't need a bunch, just enough to get the fish's attention. Oh! And I use black hackles, not brown (I ran out of brown hackle feathers!), but they both work, of course. I've caught some really big bream with them (that's sunfish - bluegills, long-ears, etc. - for you languagely-challenged northerners). ;-D

Pistol petes are great, I tie and sell hundreds a year, we use them for trout over here but I have used them on the creeks and ponds here at home and have caught a lot of nice gills and ball on them, I tye them as big as a #4 and as small as a #14, we tie them as woolybuggers and also just as a standard pistol pete design, I also tie some heavy ones with coneheads and squirrel strips, call them a pistol buster :)
