I have been tying some as well.
The purple chart was really working well a few weeks back.
I have not used the green/white/chart yet, so we will have to see.
These are both my versions of the "mop" jigs. Made using dust mop materials.

if you do a search, Dutch shows how to make your own
weed guards for the hand ties.

Thanks sk. Would have been lost (well more lost), without your tying videos. Much appreciated


That purple/chart combination looks enticing, I'll have to get some purple chenille

Interested in how those mop tails work for you.
Very creative :idea:

The purple and chart are spongy and really hold scent well. Very soft and will move back and forth.
The white/chart material is more cotton and very soft. Almost like a limp pc of rope. Did not put in glass of water or the lake yet. Maybe this weekend.
See attached pics.
