RE:Bucktail tying problem

My earlier comments were a little over the top so I am revising the message. Although I was displeased about the way I may have been profiled a while back, my intent is to work together with all other websites (that make sense) to maximize the amount of fun we can pack into a season.

I've also extended the modify time-out to 24 hours for such cases.

RE:Bucktail tying problem

Doug- I finally broke down and bought some of those jig hooks- Eagle Claw#413 for tying my clousers. The shank is the same as Mustad 34007 but the hooks come out of the package sharp. I only had a limited time to try them as on the second cast the fly froze in mid air but they seem to work better than clousers tied on a straight shank hook. At least you can throw smaller eyes and still get them to jig.
The only place I can find them is: TERMINAL TACKLE CO.phone no.:631-269-6005. ronl

Sully,
The Sluggos jumped ship when I started using Bass Assassin products and Zoom Super Flukes!
Ron,
Thanks...I'll check out the Eagle Claw jighooks. I have the Terminal Tackle catalog. In fact, I have a LOT of jighooks left over from the freshwater bass fishing that I have all but abandoned.

Doug B.
