Thread: Tying to lead heads?

    Default Tying to lead heads?

    Hey guys,

    I posted this question on the general fishing forum but someone gave me great advice and made me aware fly-fishermen might have the answers I am looking for.

    Here was my original post:

    Hey guys,

    I have a bunch of jigheads ranging from 8oz to 24oz.
    I know the most common use for them is to simply put a grub tail on them.

    However, I really like the looks of some of those parachute/mojo jigs. The part of jigging that I enjoy the most is actually imagining what my jig is doing down there and if its attracting fish or not.

    So, Im wondering if anybody knows how to make a parachute jig from a simple jighead?
    What is that material? Can you buy it somewhere? How could you keep it on?

    Any suggestions would be great.

    Ive also attached a couple of pics of parachute/mojo jigs so you know what Im talking about.

    --

    Now Im realizing that it may be fairly simple to tie/glue it on there, but what is that material? Where can I buy that type of 'hair'?

    There is a fly tying product called Fishair that could potentially work.
