I tie some level balance weighted flies for crappies and gills.


The beads are tied in using a small sewing pin and extend past the eye of the jig hook to balance the back portion of the fly.the small head of the pin is the stop for the beads.

They’re a bit of a pain to tie but they really do work well. The trick is to tie a test fly, check the balance and adjust the bead size or distance from the eye to balance it

Tie em....you’ll like em!

Wow, I like those...I wondered how you got the beads in front of the hook eye, great idea...do you have to put a little bend in the hidden part of the pin to keep it in place? Great job as usual.
take a kid hunting and fishing, it's a lot better than leaving them on the streets!!

Nah, I just tie it down good and hit it with a drop of super glue. The light colored ones are ties with organza ribbon. One of my new favorite materials.

It’s therapy work. Guess I’ve always been patient.....more of less.

Have to tell you Swamp actually kind of jealous, especially of the Crappie. Not having any luck  on Saratoga yet. Where are you?

I’ll answer for my buddy because he’s out pounding perch on Erie right now ;D
We are in the western part of the state and the crappies are in 14-16’ of water about 3’ down. That seems to be the best for pre  spawn crappies around here.
The swamper is an animal on the water. I think he can smell crappies a mile away!

A thanks.   Interesting they are suspended .    Local shallow ponds here some are starting to head to the shallows 5-8. feet .      Water still cold .    Was cold winter.  ice was very thick this year
