Big Feather Jigs

Recommended Posts

I am a rookie fly tyer. Was wondering if anybody have a good demonstration on a big feather jigs on 3/4 and 1 oz jig heads..? I'm talking about from the tip of the weight to the tip of the last feather would be roughly 5 1/2 to 7 in. I predominantly want to Tie White feathers, what feathers would y'all suggest? Thanks for any feedback

If you can post a pic of what you are thinking for a jig odds are I can give you a good idea on material and approach to typing 

I think I know what you are looking for but there is so many options

Looks like it has had a ruff life lol

About half way or even closer to the back of the hook tie in some saddle hackle feathers for the tail. Then spin strung marabou around the hook to create the collar. Probably 2-3 good size marabou feathers will do

If you want after breakfast I can tie up a jig of similar style and post a pic that would likely treat you well. If you’re interested in it I can add material list so you could make your own

First a few tie in some pearl flashabou

where the flashabou ends build up a ball of random material. This is just to flare the tail feathers of the jig and it’s not seen

I appreciate it Hillbilly my old baseball coach is a fly fishing guide around here, he's teaching me how to tie these big feather jigs based on your info. I will send you the pics of the Giant Smallmouth I'll be yanking off the ledges. Thanks again bud

Well Hillbilly, ive tied a few now. This is my fist one. Not as pretty as yours, but it caught some fish. Ive gotten much better. But i thought you might get a laugh at this one i called Genesis... as you can see I didn't start the feathers till past halfway the hook. Give me your honest opinion about my first try and then I'll post my last one I tied. Still not as pretty as yours but very similar. And one more thing hillbilly, what is your opinion on using like real turkey feathers, owl feathers, Hawk, goose, hummingbird,
