The Ott Jig
A friend told me what he would like to have in a Flipping Jig and asked me if I could make it. I told him I would try.
This is a modified production sparkie jig in a 5/8 oz. weight. It was slow going and I made a few boo boos along the way but JB Weld took care of those. This is the end result and we are satisfied with it.
This mold has been changed and made to accept a Premium 3/0 or 4/0 Mustad Flat Eye, Heavy Wire, Ultra Point, Flipp’un Hook
This mold has been machined to change the placement of the hook in relationship to the body of the jig so that the eye of the hook is partially imbedded in the head of the jig
The hook point has also been placed right up close to the weed guard
A stainless steel screw lock (hand made on Kelly's tool for making consistent screw locks)has been added to the hook shank
Powder coated and hand tied skirt
