I use to use Bonita Feathers when I was a kid, a 1/0 or 2/0 long shank hook with feathers tied to it. I can't seem to find them anywhere now, does anyone know who still sells these?

Super easy to make if you can find the supplies. I used to use rooster feathers from Sport Chalet..chartreuse/white/dark green/blue...clip, and tie to a long shank hook. maybe some nail polish or head cement over the threads to make it last. If you want to get really fancy, add some flashabou or mylar mxed with the feathers.
I've also used straight chartreuse crappy jigs..the little 1.09 packs fromm Walmart...they bite those too.
