Show off your work!

Here's a look at a display I put together for a local fishing and hunting show:

 

Another%20View%20of%20Display-XL.jpg

 

This event has the feel of a flea market and my intention is to get a fair, non-negotiable price for work I spend considerable time on. I want the product to stand out from other venders "stuff dumped in tubs," so I decided to go high end with descriptive signs in holders and a photo board so I can point to a pic and explain a process. The photos also serve to quiet young bucks who smirk and say, "Do these things work?" I just point to a 4 lb. smallmouth and smile. By the way, the tablecloth is linen.

Like many others, I like the looks of the casting that comes out of Do-it's Poison tail mold. I also tie bucktail and bear on an 1/8 oz. ball jig. Working one of these along the bottom slowly with a twitch and a pause for chilled out smallies puts you in a state of high alert. If you've got the patience for this oh-so-subtle presentation you may be well rewarded.

New for the 2019 F & H show is this Crestliner2008-inspired blade bait mod. Start with Barlow's 5/8 oz. vibrating blade bait body, get out your Dremel and, wearing a full face shield, cut off the front hook hanger with an abrasive disc that will shatter if you flex it. Eagle Claw's 1/0 Siwash will show even a bruiser bass who's boss.

 

You see above a couple of 1/4 oz. football heads, one tied with bucktail, the other with bear.

It's not late breaking news to come up with this offering. What is, however, are their PVA trailers. I've bid a fond farewell to Uncle Josh and am now cutting Polyvinyl Alcohol into a shape that I think will say,"Food!" to fish.

 

Gotta get back to the bench now to continue preparations for tomorrow's show. We'll discuss the potential of PVA later in the month.

@Jigfishn10,

Did you use a tungsten bullet weight for the body? 

Why yes I did. I wanted the head to be small in diameter to make sure the blade spins around it. Not much of an issue with a Colorado blade, the Indiana and willow leaf (not shown) tend to spin closer to the body. 

 

Thanks for your interest.

Painted a few in a crappie pattern this afternoon.  I like the way they turned out.

Looks like they catch filing cabinets well.

Thanks for lying for me Dan! 😊 And those look good! I may need to help you test those out this spring.

Gillroid K.O.   This is the first time I have tried to paint a jointed bait, so still figuring out a few things.  I am still happy with the results for a 1st attempt.

That looks nice. I have one of those blanks but I keep forgetting to test swim it. Even it it's just decent it will be a win for the price.

I am hoping to get out in the morning for a little while, have several K.O. blanks I want to try out. 

Went to a local pond and threw the Gillroid around to check it out.  It actually swims decently.  I got mine from this guy, www.alternativelures.com.   His name is Luis, and he takes good care of his customers.

I’ve Been working on some hair jigs. These are mostly walleye patterns. I’ve had some luck on orange with black core.

Ive been really digging the 1/8 poisontail tied with hair as well. This jig has been coming great through rocks and you get a nice flair on the hair

Very nice work here. Keep the pics coming.

I bought three of the Jackal TN blanks, this was the last of them.  The blank looked like it may have either not been pulled well or experienced damage in shipping.  It works well and does not leak.
