Default Winter Time Tying

Tied up a bunch of jigs so far this winter. Some of the patterns I have been working on. Can't wait to try the leech patterns. Should be killer.

I've used some bunny leeches in the river out here with some success. We're not allowed to use leeches in WA State. The Columbia River is almost entirely controlled by dams. In the summer, the dams are mandated to spill water 8 hours per day minimum to help flush salmon smolts through the system. The dams used to have to meet the requirement in consecutive hours. That changed to any 8 in a 24 hour period. You can imagine the impact that's had on fishing. Those leeches have been a pleasant counter move to the new normal conditions.

Nice looking. In the first picture, lower right jig, it looks like you used a Do-It "Walleye Jig" model. I really like that head shape, feel I have less rock snags. I have modified my mold so that the hook eye can also be molded straight up, that way I can fish it vertically and it will hang straight.

You have a good eye for detail on your baits!

Yes Bill it is the walleye jig mold. One of my favorites.
