Default 1st ties...Posion Tung & takeoff

Finally it has begun!
First one I tied up is off of a pattern "Deep Blue Posion Tung"
Second one is something I came up with on my own... I am sure someone has done something like it before. I made a half dozen of each.
Was a total blast tonight! Wish I was have started tying sooner!

Interesting...

Are you planning on using them for ice fishing or fly fishing? I also like to tie up a few of the poison tungs for winter tailwater fishing...usually a size 18-22, a great flashy midge pattern that catches a lot of fish.

Actually nethier. Over the next couple months I am going to be tying up a bunch of jig-flies for fishing colorado rivers.  I really enjoy spin fishing for river trout, jerkbaits/poppers/cranks/spinners. But this summer has taught me I also need to have a more natural/subtle presentation as trout begin to tune out my more reactionary lures.

side note: I do fly fishing, but dislike carrying two rods around.  I have used a fly & bubble combo before, but I find that is a better combo for surface and subface presentations.

Fly fishng with small jig heads for trout is pretty radical. Some purists may think it blasphemy, but one should consider bouncing a stonefly style jig in the spring. Can be deadly...

I'm intrigued...but this is a little different...a midge style jig vs. a stonefly jig. I can understand the stonefly, but a midge might be too small to re-create as a jig.

That's what I was thinking. These patterns are meant to imitate tiny worm-lookin things that have very little weight naturally. A jig head just might not drift right. Let us know how they do, FishJunkie. I'm really curious. I love the ingenuity.

Thanks Dozer. I think that is one of the truly cool things about tying.. you are only limited by your own creativity

It may be to small to recreate as a jig....but probably not only because you can fish midge patterns up to a size 14.

Also, even if it is still big to imitate a natural midge, he will probably still catch fish on it.

I haven't heard anything about jig head for fly fishing until this week!
But a couple days ago, I came across a blog from a couple guys in my old home town, and they using them too.
here's the link if anybody's interested http://www.dakotaflyangler.blogspot.com/

Jig head or not, those are some good looking first ties you have!
Let us know how you do.

I tied up a bunch earlier this week, and trying them up Poudre Canyon tomorrow...don't know if it's too early for blue, guess we'll find out
