  1. Flytire, I’ve been admiring your work for some time and want to thank you for posting the pictures. You certainly do have the skills. AND a large collection of materials. Have you ever thought about publishing a book of fly patterns. You, no doubt, have the ability to pull it off. Great job, and thanks. BB
  2. I just placed an order for 9 items, I think, and all 9 were shipped the next day. The web store is Whitetail Fly Tieing. (That is the correct spelling for the name of the business.) These are really super people to work with. It was originally owned by Chris Helms. Now it’s own by the Richardson’s. BB
  3. Steve, it’s really simple. I used a strand of white Chenille and a strand of blue Chenille and twisted them together. Actually, I stole this pattern off of YouTube. The tyer’s name is Roman Avila and the pattern is “Monky Milk.” (His misspelling.) He shows how to twist the strands of Chenille. Actually, this guy has a lot of videos and some good ideas. I had to get used to his accent, but I’ve enjoyed watching his videos. Check him out. BB
  4. Thanks, Niveker for posting the pics. My green jig has been working great for me lately. OK, Johnw1986, there is your picture. What kind of Chenille and where did you get it? My sister is out of the hospital and doing much better. Thanks to all of you for your well-wishes. Take care BB
  5. Guys, the jigs are FINALLY in the mail and on their way back to you. I had planned to get that done yesterday, but my younger sister was rushed to the hospital yesterday and spent last night in the CCU. It takes a little more than an hour to get there so I spent a large chunk of the day just seeing to that. My older sister was out of town and so I was the only family member available to check on her. Thanks to all of you for participating. BB
  6. My buddy and I caught 32 Crappie, 1 hybrid (white bass & stripper. The SCDNR and GaDNR stock them in our lake) and one "Spot," Spotted Bass (Invasive species) yesterday. Richmce"s jigs arrived today. The Post Office is open 1 hour tomorrow & I have a confllict, so it will be the first of the week before I can get them out. Thanks to all who participated. BB
  7. Stabgnid’s Set arrived yesterday. Waiting for 1 last set BB
  8. We received another set of jigs from Niveker. Nice set. Thanks Niveker. We are waiting on 2 more sets and I believe they have both been mailed. I will turn the jigs around and get them headed back to you guys as soon as I get those last 2 sets. BB
  9. DarrelP your jigs are here and they are sweeeeeet! Thanks. BB
  10. As requested, the first post of this thread has been updated to show Received sets. BB
  11. Sorry, Vic. Things are always hectic here on the weekends. Your jigs arrived on Saturday. Great set. I will try to catch up the front page ASAP. I have another commitment that I need to leave for in about 5 minutes. Who said retirees aren't busy? BB
  12. Hey Guys, I apologize for being so late about posting this. Between some family problems all weekend and nearly 300 miles yesterday for a funeral which was a totally unrelated, non-family event, plus a worrisome health situation for me, I haven’t been around much. However, the good news is that we now have in hand, Jigs from Woodenlegs and JohnW1986. Great work, guys. More good news is that I have received materials for 1 of my 2 sets and have tried a tie that I thing will work. I already have the materials for the second set. Tight lines BB
  13. I haven’t tried this, but I saw a YouTube video where a guy had some jig heads with collars, but wanted ball heads. So, he used a pair of large nail clippers, “toenail clippers” and cut through the collar right at the head and then cut the collar lengthwise to get it off the hook. It looked very safe the way he did it and it only took a few seconds. Just an idea. BB
  14. Yes, Richmce, we had another to join. A total of 16 Jigs, 8 of 1 pattern and 8 of another pattern. BB
