They look great. I've been tying hair on some tungsten jigs and having great results,plus I don't have to change ripped up plastics or buy the overpriced stuff.

I used a size 12 competition fly tying jig hook,  they are ridiculously sharp and barbless makes getting back down to fish faster. Then the body is a material called d-rib to make a nice segmented body. The hackle is a mottled brown hen hackle. For the weight I used 5-6 wraps of lead wire, to help hold the bead in place, and a black nickel tungsten bead that is a little bit oversized for the hook so it should sink a little faster.

I liked the vmc fly but I didn't feel like I got the quality I should have for the price so I made my own version. I will try them out this weekend should help get some crappies

I was thinking about ice flies the other day. Glad I saw this thread, gives me some ideas.  Thanks for posting, redneck.

No problem guys. All a guy needs to make any nymph pattern work for ice Fishing is a jig hook and enough weight to make it sink at a reasonable rate

I will still tip these with some kind of bait but the hackle will give it just that much more movement in the water I'm hoping. I will find out tomorrow  :)
