Some time ago, I started making a
bladed bait out of this mold. With
the blade attached to its back, it
has excellent balance in the water.
I next modified it to be a swim bait
head with three blades two on the
sides and one on the belly.
Ben tied a hair jig in a sexy shad a
few days ago and for some reason it
got me to thinking about making a
buck tail chatter style jig with side
blades. Its been a long time since I
have tied a hair jig and the next one
should look a little better But here
is what I came up with.
The side arms are a titanium wire
which was inserted through the mold.
it has a v in the center of its
length to keep it from pulling out of
the head should it get tangled or
hooked on something.
The head is painted with powder paint
using Cadmans," Tap A Brush " method.
Using it as a swimbait head, it came
through the water with just a slight
tail up position. Almost level, I am
hoping it will do the same as a
vibrating bladed jig.
Hope you like it.
