There are a couple old posts on the site somewhere (either here or in the fly tying section) by fishingal that shows some that she has tied up. I bought a bunch of small jigheads and some other materials to tie up some for this year. Haven't gotten to it yet, but plan to. I think she said she did have good luck with them.

Depending on the size of the jighead you are looking for, they could be a little hard to find. Especially in the very small sizes (think small ratfinke). I think she said they had some down at Bass Pro. I think I found mine this summer over at the gander in Thornton.

I also picked up some bigger jigheads and some white marabou for tying up some laker jigs that I read about online, but again, haven't gotten to them. Maybe the cold weather will put me in a tying mood soon.

Yep. I'll post some patterns later today when I have more time.

Funny you posted this, I just started adding to the aresnal this weekend. I started tying a handful of jigs with a box of prepainted 1/32 jig heads form BPS. Took the dremel and shaved off some of the extra body and then tied on some sparkely hackle and som feather out teh back. Nothing crazy yet.

I'll get my imagination going here in the next few weeks though.

If someone ties up a perfect scud pattern 1/64th in natural and pink I'd be interested in buying some.

These are some of the better ones Ive found:

But It would be awesome to find someone who can put some small orange legs on them so they move around just slightly, and add a bit of weight on lets say a #16 or 18 fly.
