  1. Wouldn't these give you much the same action? I know that making them is probably cheaper, but your time is worth something and if these work and aren't too expensive, it might be worth giving it a try. http://wigglefin.com/ActionDisc_detail.html
  2. I would think that this could be replicated fairly easily with a 3D printer using a medium soft 3D filament material. Scan one in to get the shape and dimensions into the software and print out a couple dozen at a time. Just a thought... Jim Smith
  3. I've been tying flies for about 30 years, but I've just joined this group. I enjoy playing around with materials and creating my own fly designs, mainly for warm water fishing. I make my own jig heads with different sized non-lead split shot crimped and glued to jig hooks. This allows me to use the hook sizes I want and the jig head weight I want. Here's one pattern that works well for me. It imitates a small bluegill and when at rest on the bottom, it stands on its head a bit like a Ned rig. Just a bit of hair for the tail with a couple strands of copper colored Crystal flash added. The body is made from a synthetic dubbing brush and the collar is a red hackle. I like to paint the jig head and add 3D eyes before giving it a coat of UV epoxy.
