I'm getting back at building also, I'm building 3 inch deep divers. I tried this last year an got close except for the wire which lies my dilema. starting at the tail enserting the wire up to the lip slot then bending the wire up through the lip and back down then a small twist under the lip. The wire I used before was to brittle an i broke the wire. I'm looking for a wire that is very pliable but strong enough for muskie hits. Any ideas?
