Anyone use feathered hooks for rigging?
Permalink  
 


I was messing around at home with some tackle and tied a few hooks with a feather and some reflective Strands. Threw this in some water and to my suprise it looked to me a lot like i would think a mayfly would, anyone experiment with this at all? Maybe top it off with a minnow or leech?

thoughts all?

I have tried it on occassion with not much success. Its usually a tactic change when nothingelse is working for me so its not like i really gave it a fair chance.

NO FEATHERS used from this angler! I will use a bead once in awhile...alot of time plain, just and simple works the best
