I am looking to tie some jigs and buzzbaits. I was wondering what people like better, thread or wire tieing? If anyone has any good advice on how to please share. I looked on u tube and the search results are all over the board.
Look up a YouTube channel called “smalljaw”, the guy has a good video on using wire. 24-26 gauge wire from the plastic flower section of a hobby shop. Put the jig in a vice, take a 3” inch piece of wire, make 3 wraps around the skirt, use pliers to pull the wire ends to get the wraps tight - you shouldn’t be able to pull the skirt out, twist the tag ends, nip off wire until about 1/4 inch is left and then fold that over flush against the wrap.
