Easy To Make Swim Jig

As you can see in the picture, I used the "Perfect Finesse Worm Rig" to make this swim jig. I re-coated the head with powder paint and added a skirt spreader which is made of the cap that covers the small needle of my insulin pens. I cut off the enclosed end of the cap, then pushed it up onto the hook shank, wedged a tooth pick in it to make it tight then epoxied it. Next I hand tied a skirt and Presto you have a swim jig. The design of the hook acts as a keel and keeps the point up.

Don't copy my paint scheme, I just noticed that I have the head colors wrong! The colors should be reversed with chart on the belly and the blue on top.

Looks good! If you need some more of those jigheads I had Shawn Collins make me a custom mold to pour them and I will trade some.

I have not been able to find those long necked hooks. I have other ideas for this hook but the only way I can get them is to buy the perfect finesse worm rig at BPS and they are expensive, $3.99 for a four pk. Can anyone tell me where I can get this hook. I don't know the style or the #s for it. But according to the pkg. these rigs come in, it is a Gamakatsu hook. Thanks John

Allen, I appreciate the offer, but now that I know where to get them, I will order some. Making lures is an addictive hobby of mine, I have some ideas for this hook. As a bait maker, you would know that most times, it takes more than a few prototypes to achieve what you are trying to make. At a dollar a hook, it gets expensive rather quickly.

Thanks again for the offer and sharing the link to the hook.
