Some two weeks ago I purchased table lever shears from a local supermarket special sale , it really seems to improve my sheet metal work in terms of faster and more accurate cutting , as not so much fine shaping by filing/grinding is required anymore .
First lures , that I've cut out with these shears are these experimentals , that I have named "sandwich jiggers" .
I intend to cast them from the bank of our local river "Elbe" and jig them back along the bottom , as jigging spoons rigged with single hooks do not snag up as often by far in that snaggy swim as plastics on leadheads do .
Certainly it might be easier to cast such lures from lead , but these jiggers of several layers of sheet metal(copper and stainless steel) have the advantage of generating a moderate metallic clicking sound anytime they fall back on the bottom , maybe even on every flick of the rod .
The lures are 80mm in length(without hooks) and weight approx. 35 grams , their reverse side is decorated the same way as the top side .
Gonna cast them tomorrow for a first test !
