Were you tying marabou feathers to a hook?
Close enough to a jig for me.
In fact I used to make headless jigs, marabou feathers on a #12 or 14 hook, in black and yellow for my dad. He would work them with a short flick of the end of his fly rod and taking up a handful of slack. That gave off the appearance of an escaping minnow and he could pull fish from all sorts of cover with them.
