    Size 6 or size 2 jig hooks. They have worked better when the trout have been in the waters for a little time. Bass love them.

    Neat! I like those. I especially want to send you some belly hair this fall in return for a couple of those weighted ones. Look like they might be the trick for stocked rainbows. What size hooks?

    The three with the beads at the end are actually jig flies. Just got into tying them. They work great for a lot of species including crappie. I add weight to all of them so really no need for splits unless fishing some stronger current.

    I like those lone wolf!

    About 1.25" long in yellow or silvery grey with a small black streak down each side would be awesome crappie jigs.
    I know those aren't categorically "jigs", but a small split shot right at the knot would work great.
    When the crappie spawn in the shallows, they take minnows and lures rigged 4 to 6 inches below a bobber.

    I've tied with other hair like it's back. It is longer and harder to tie with for the flies I make. But any part of the deers hair is good just different fly patterns take different materials.

    I dye my own hair also so white is the easiest to color.

    As for it being hollow the way I understand it, it is not hollow like a drinking straw but more like a cork. Floats great.

    As for taxidermy in my area I'm sure there's a couple but rather make a deal with someone like tie up a dozen of flies then get charged an arm and leg for some small patches.

    Why is the belly hair desirable ? How about the hair on the inside of the back legs ? Is the belly hair also hollow ? No taxidermists in your area ?

    It’s more like when the cops gather and wonder what the +/;+-% your doing and I’m on the 6 o’clock news. Lol.
