Can you help replicate this jig

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

By recommendation of a member of a different forum, I have come here for your help.

I am hoping someone can replicate a jig for a fishing mentor of mine.

I am pretty sure it is a 1/4 ounce jig with a mustard wide gap hook. I think the colors are olive (or dark olive) and chartreuse. I am not sure of the material (buck tail vs. maribou vs. craft fur or a combination).

I will pay a premium to anyone who can replicate it for me. Thanks for your help!

I hate judging material by pics but I will try

If I am seeing it right it’s a coarse stiff hair on the outside that I assume is bucktail. The inside if it is a softer fluffy material it is likely marabou spun around the shank

In my hand I would know right away but pics are tougher

I know pictures are not ideal. Thanks for playing along and giving your input though.

I believe Hillbilly is correct.  I zoomed in as much as possible and I am sure that it is marabou spun on the shank and bucktail over it.  The material Flyman is talking about is not it, but it would be an upgrade for sure.

As for colors, the two pictures are so different that it is clear that you will need to take it with you to a local store to match (never possible completely).  The jig head is an old head that I have not seen for some time, but lureparts.com has some that would be close, and even an update as well.

This one would be my suggested one.  https://www.lurepartsonline.com/1826-Super-Stroke-Swim-Jig-5pk

As for the grub, you are going to have more issues.  Because there are two pictures, each looking different, you will need to do some searching on the web and "roll the dice".  This looks well fished, so we don't know if there was a color fade. 

I would never agree to make some for a customer that was a perfect match, but I am sure you can get close enough for the fish.

I should have added a pic without the grub. Was the video helpful?

 

Close is probably good enough, and probably even better than the original.

Might want to add your location because there is builders from all over the world on here

 

"Was the video helpful?"  Yes, the video was helpful, but because the camera kept refocusing in it kind of hurt my old eyes.

Yes, we do have people from one end of this big old earth to another.  Hillbilly is right again.
