The Jigs Up

After work yesterday, I made it home with day light to spare.  I quickly changed, grabbed my already lined up  3 wt from the laundry room, and rushed outside to wet a line in the backyard.  Shortly after my 4th cast, the sun began it’s decent.  I wasn’t complaining about it, either.  It was a beautiful sight.  It almost seemed like there was a fire in the sky.
10 casts, a beautiful sunset, 2 skunks (wandering around near me), and 1 skunk of my own, I decided to call it a night and head in for dinner.
 
After dinner I sat down at the vise and began to tie up some more jigs, but not without some fly tying fuel.  I sure do love IPA’s.  Didn’t have high expectations for this one.  I bought it, because, it was made with one of my favorite punk rock bands growing up, NOFX.
Here’s the end results of some jigs that will pair well with spinning rod and some winter fish.  Nothing fancy.  Just materials that get the job done that fish enjoy.

  1. Those jigs would work for me. Designed to fish and catch fish!Isn't that what it is all about, anyway?Real skunks and me don't hang out together either…………..

  2. Oh, I know where the one around my place lives, and I'm very wary of him/her. I love fly tying. It allows me to use my imagination, and keeps my mind engaged when I'm at the desk and when I'm out on the water. Taking note of what works and what tweeks I can possibly make to a fly. Not to mention the photography aspect of it.
