I am looking to get into tying buck tail jigs, is there a master out there that could share a video. There are some I found through google, but nothing like the incredibly detailed fly tying videos some of you guys have produced. I want to make the best possible as soon as possible.

I've likely tied several thousand of them, but never did a video. They're not difficult to tie if you've done any tying at all. 

There are details that IMO make a bucktail jig better than simply lashing hair to the jig, but still tying them is basic.

 

Be glad to pass along any help I can give you! smile.png

I tie a a lot of them but don't do video's but a buddy of mine has several on youtube - they are good and will show you how to make sure the bucktail (or if you decided to try craft fur) stays on and doesn't pull out.

Just Fishing! All life is that to some extent. If we are not fishing for one thing it is another. But angling! That's just a bit different. In it we find peace and contentment and much with which to occupy our minds. May the balance of our fishing days be blessed with congenial comrades and "tight lines." Ray Bergman

I would be happy to chat with anyone who wanted to tie jigs.  Im a second generation tyer - learned when I was about 12 and have been tying for fun and profit ever since.  In central NY I get orders from the smallest panfish jig to larger sizes for walleye and pike. These picts are a family special - 1/2 Barumba Head.

You can also find a great group at jigcraft.com

There is even a jig you can tie to fly fish with. It is a 1/16 oz. jig on a 5/0 hook. I fish them quite a bit for bass and they don't cast with any more problem than  flies with the heavier cone heads. They are made by H2o and I think they are for salt water with plastics. Here is a picture of a few.
