    Selection for 2020 steelhead trip.
  2. Used a Copic G99 Olive marker for the barring. I like the fine point on one end. I let it dry for a few hours, soaked it, and then dried it out again. Looking at it a week later, it has faded a bit but I'm not going to worry about it - it still suggests a perch to smallmouth and the rocks will still love it.
  3. Basscat, I'm wondering if you've fished these beautifully finished baits and found that the paint cuts down the vibration significantly? This same blank with self-stick color decals and a 1/0 Siwash is my early season go-to for central Massachusetts smallmouth.
  4. Rigged on a dropshot, smallmouth may show some interest. Hooks are TMC 9395, size 4. Overall lengths of these Zonkers are 3 1/2" - 4".
  5. Everything you're showing is neatly crafted and well proportioned to my critical eye.

  7. Thank you, smalljaw. I'll stick with the Sharpie and if the jig evades the rocks long enough for the markings to fade, I can touch it up. I asked the question because I found a jig I had tied several years ago and had left in a box. It had faded in storage. I brought the stripes back in a couple of minutes with the Sharpie. I may still get an olive Copic to try because I want to tie a few perch patterns with a sculpin olive bucktail top. Thanks again for taking the time for the testing. WW
