Hadn't never a feather jig and figured it was time
A friend told me recently that he uses feather jigs for trout and since trout strike everything all fish strike, why not make one and try it in a local lake. Sure enough it caught a dozen fish - namely bass, sunfish and crappie.
(The one on the bottom is a Joker tail added to a grub body that wasn't cast.):



These also caught fish:



I didn't want to start fishing until the clouds moved in which happened by noon. With a ripple on the water, the bite was good in the shallows near weed beds and under shady tree branches where the shore dropped fast into deep water.

Interesting, I know crappie love marabou jigs, so I'm guessing feather jigs have a similar movement in the water.
