    I am kind of annoyed that it is difficult to find a crawdad colored jig and trailer combo that is accurate for Southern California, orange and reds, what's with that? Well I had some of these marking flags for construction that are bright orange and thought I could spruce up a few jigs to make them brighter given the rain and how it muddies up some of our local lakes.
    Sliced up a few strips about 1/16" wide and added them to a couple jigs. Modified a trailer by cutting down the length and trimmed the tails so they weren't as curly, these trailers would tangle up easy and I am fishing very slowly and not as concerned with action.
