Welcome to the site.  There's a few members who tie billed lures/flies.  You'll get some good information here.

Oh yeah!  Seeing Rich's name reminded me of a very good pattern for jig hooks.

Craig Riendeau's "Wee Willie Wiggler".

In Topic: Using Jig Hooks

My favorite ... actually, my only patterns I tie on jig hooks are crayfish (crawdad, mudbugs, etc.).  I don't do them often, because they don't produce any better than my "goto" fly, which doesn't use a jig hook.

 

But jig hooks excel at keeping the hook point up ... so bottom bouncing/hugging patterns are great on them.

I have some Emu ... from a feather duster I bought at Bed-Bath-and-Beyond.

 

The only material tied on a size 12 hook, it makes for a neat, little, buggy looking ... thing.

 

I think I have pictures on my home computer ... I'll check when I get there.
