feathers on hooks?
« on: Feb 11, 2018, 08:34 AM »
 I just read a tip up tip, on another forum, and a guy said his dad would add a red feather tied to his hood on a sucker treble, and when the fish moved, the feather created action, that he thought resembled bleeding. anybody do this? I do think it would add a lot of action

 I do sometimes add a spinner skirt to my leaders just above the hook, crazy action

I also read that post and have tied red feathers on some of my quick strike rigs for nose treble and plan on using with Pike and Lakers. I think its a great Idea to resemble bleeding.

Feathers + hooks = flies. And they work great.

Whether or not the red color emulates bleeding is up to debate but I’m sure it doesn’t hurt the effect. The action from the feather alone is enough to warrant a strike regardless of color. Action outweighs color in my experience.
