Report Don't know what to call this. in BassBugger Member Submissions Posted October 2 I've been tying and fishing with "hair jigs" with spinning gear over the past couple of months. The biggest downside is that unless they are tied with relatively heavy jigs, it is tough to get the kind of casting distance that you you get throwing plastic baits. They fish well within the distance that you can cast them. I've tied jig versions of flies that I have used and I have caught fish with some of them. My Fuzzy Grub pattern has done well, as have rabbit strip patterns like Tom L's Foxy Craw. I have tied the Bad Hair Day on jigs that that pattern just does have the same action or has had as good of results as the fly version of the pattern. Gene, what kind of eyes (size/brand are you using are your jig?
