  1. Cadman, I have been using the EC 635 and some black nickle and they are both acceptable for my use. Just keeping my options open when I get back to Illinois where I pour. The black nickle just looks sharper,stronger.
  2. Am looking to purchase a JYS-4-A banana jig mold that takes Eagle Claw 635 hooks. Are there any other inexpensive salt water hooks out there. I find most people lose them before any rusting takes place.
  3. Am using what is left of deer hair that has been cut already as a base for flaring the materials put over it (usually flash). I am tying saltwater jigs and use a deer hair base for flare jigs.
  4. I have used a powder from Zeinershttps://www.zeiners.com/doit/powderpaint.html called "Copperhead" Have noticed it slightly changes it's antique finish with more or less heat. Good natural looking head.
  5. fshng2, I took a screen shot of your list.Have never seen so much useful info in one place before. Great!
  6. Thanks guys, Used to use hair conditioner to take the twist out of mono but,never used on the deer hair. Have some tails that were shot in Wisconsin and some were bought. The wild ones would benefit from conditioner.
  7. Thanks fshng2 and toadfrog. I tie these jigs and use clear nail polish and even Hard As Nails. Guess you'd have to call them expendable.And, got my money's worth. And I will keep using the descriptive adjectives!
  8. Saltwater fish eat deer hair and spit the lead out.
  9. Not actually buying or selling was trying to see if they are 30% higher than lead more or less. Jimmyjigs
  10. Cadman,Can you ballpark the price for a bismuth/tin simple jig?
  11. Jigman,Cadman,Had a fellow tier who tied the whip finish by hand so fast it was impossible for me to ever learn it.Almost hard to see it! Unfortunately I finish heads with 2 modified half hitches that go around 4 times instead of just one. Never had any come apart but, if I don't really cinch them up a whisp of thread can stick out which has to be clipped.Might buy the tool.Thanx.

    Whip Finish

    Do you all whip finish your jigheads? And do you use a whip finish tool?
