First Jigs Ever!

Recommended Posts

First time jig pourer. These are my first jigs ever!! I am waiting on the epoxy to cure. Jigs shown are 1/2oz with a 4/0 Owner 3X 5317 jig hook. Thanks Jigman for the advice. I’ll post some pictures of the completed product. I got the powder all over my shop, and there is powder all over the hook eye. Looking forward in learning more of this stuff. 

 

I looked like a medieval Knight, fighting the crusades. I had on every piece of safety equipment there was. 

 

I guess I have found another black hole to throw money at!

Thank's man! I need to post a picture of the fist jig I dipped before I made the fluid bed. They came out looking like the jig had a rhino horn!

Picture below is a completed Jig.

The jig looks good.  The paint on the eye won't hurt as long as you can get the line through the hole.  If you want to keep the paint off the eye, hold the jig by the eye with pliers or hemostats.  It is a bit tricky but you will get the hang of it.

 

I'm looking forward to seeing some of your Poison Tail jigs.

 

Look at Cadman's avatar.  When you want to really get going you can learn the tap method.  It is what Cadman's is widely known for being, one of, if not the best in the business.

 

Good luck and keep us posted on your progress.

Is it a Do-It mold or a CNC works custom?

That is a Collins mold, CNC-Works. He doesn't have it listed anymore but he has the same one in a flat eye hook style that is made for the 32796 Mustad.

That is what I thought based on the barb and collar. I have the flat-eye one myself and it is great.
