Re: bi-colored CJ's
Gasp, I've *purchased* these in red/blue, green/gold (I've used this pattern in several ways), red/gold and I'd be curious to see if anybody's tried the following:
Red/white - candy cane (sounds midge-y)
hot pink/wine(purple) - barbie (?) - there's a Reef Runner color called that oOoOoOo
red/dark green - christmas oOoOoOo
silver/black - original zebra
olive/chartreuse - now that's a green grannom! oOoOoO
For a little more texture, try varying your *sizes* on the wire itself - Charlie Craven has this listed on his pattern for a Hot Wire Prince - Brassie for one color and small for the other- the size variation adds to the ribbed effect this creates like a oOoOoOo texture.
More importantly, SET THE HOOK!
I still say he married me because he took me ice fishing and I still wanted to go fishing with him again!
