    They look great! Like the look of the red one on the jig head. A fantastic idea. How long does it take to put one together?

    Takes about 10 to 20 minutes depending on how tangled your fingers get the jig head lures are similar to the ones that are used by Nathan on big angry fish he calls them scoots but they are also called bucktail jigs on the commercial market, one of my mates is already trying to talk me into selling some flasher rigs and jigs to him but I want to test them first to know in my own mind that the patterns work. The jig in the second pic has had a yellow feather tied over the orange one and silver french tinsel added to where the thread is tied off and I nicked some metallic red nail polish off the missus to paint the head of it. The top pic the colours are orange, white and red feathers with orange and black krystal flash underneath.

    Cool

    If you do some up for your mate hook me up also! Hell price me up a couple and I'll see what southern fish think of them. Reckon the gurnards would go hard on the middle one.. they seem to like a bit of yellow n red.

    Hockey season is over....fishing time!!

    Once I have tested them I will let you know how they go I want to get some marabou to tie better ones with than the cheap $2 bag of feathers I got from the warehouse, I also just had some 7/0 1.5oz soft bait heads turn up today so I will be trying some other colours once my krystal flash arrives so I can see if I can get a good kingi lure happening.
