  1. The longer the feathers the higher the cost.
  2. Get ready to pay about 90 dollars a pound for long feathers. On big lures you can figure as a rule of thumb 1/4 oz. per lure give or take a little.

    Must be something wrong on my end . Won't let me click where it says photo files In the cube . After all these years I thought they might have gotten all the hinks out of the system .

    Don't see a price can't see a pic . Maybe a pm would help.
  5. Try Wolf manufacturing terminal tackle .
  6. Not unless you have a business permit or get it from China . Some fly shops might give you a break on a box. Might try Grandpa Bob's fly tying .
  7. Lat down a grip wrap on the hook shank going from head to point of hook and back to the head. Take 2 loose wraps while hair is in place . Pull tension on the thread and spread the hair around the hook shank with your index finger trying no to let loose of the hair . Pull tight and start wrapping back moving your fingers as you fell the thread make contact .Then add your chenille or whatever, finish out the jig.
  8. 21XDC I'll take a look at those. Thanks
  9. Thanks guys . I guess I,m still gonna have to pay the price since I don't have a tackle shop anymore or do production of lures as a business now .
  10. Just wondering if anyone has come up with an alternative to the WB400 wires or built a homemade bending system for them . Getting old and lazy and don't want to hand bend a bunch of them or pay the price. I can order bulk but 100,0000 for a thousand bucks but I wouldn't live long enough to use near that many .
  11. I do it this way . Squish all the air out of the bag. Then use a card that folds over the top and extends down the back of the bag .
  12. I just hang the heads in apple cider vinegar . Shiny and etched in a few hours.
  13. Follow the previous advice but first when you buy the jig Check to see if the thread has been clear coated where it was tied. Then a day or so before you use it . Spread the hair out to expose the shank of the hook. Put a couple drops of clear coat (clear nail polish will work) at the base of the tie on the hook shank. Allow it to soak towards the head on the interior. This should increase the longevity of your lure . Except for the fish with teeth. Then it's just a matter of how many descriptive adjectives it takes you to calm down.
  14. If you use wheel weights go to Youtube and check out wheel weight identification . Not all weights are the same . Some are composite and the chemicals in them will eat up your lead pot over time.
  15. I'm lazy so I don't grind . I just pour the left over plastic on a cookie sheet. Roll it up and drop it in a zip - lock when its cool . When I'm ready to use it I roll it up tight like jelly roll cut it in thin slices with a sharp kitchen knife . Looks kinda like veggie pasta. Had no trouble packing it in a cup and heating normally around 2.5 minutes nuking it . Depends somewhat on the plastic.
