Jason Sealock talks about how he ties skirts for bass fishing jigs or spinnerbaits. He’s made his own jigs and spinnerbaits and tackle for more than a decade just as a hobby and to experiment with colors, fishability, flaring, accents, trailers and more. Tying your own skirts is really inexpensive, you can make them in colors no other angler will be fishing and you can match real specific things you learn about forage on a certain body of water. You don’t much in the way of tools and the materials are pretty cheap as well. A lot of professional anglers just carry heads and skirt materials and put together the jigs when they get to a body of water and can see the conditions and forage base to match the type of jig they need to fish.
