I've been tying traditional steelhead/ salmon style flies and used some to catch largemouth and small mouth bass. But this year my interest is in things like trout spey, swing flies, shank flies, things of that nature. I was wondering if anyone on here who tie fl

But again I would like to know what size jig head the size hook people use. Also would like to know where to buy good jig heads since I don't pour my own and don't have proper equipment to do so. I fish mainly ponds for crappie, bluegill and largemouth bass and every now and then creeks for carp and smallmouth bass. I do also f
