I want to get started in building wooden balsa or basswood baits, I just have a question about the hardware. I am probably going to be building rather small baits 2.5 - 3 inch baits, I was just wondering what size of hooks, screweyes, o-rings and if the actual "eyes" come in different sizes, and what would be the best for 2.5 - 3 inch baits. Any help would be greatly appreciated because I just want to get all of my materials together before I start.

Get a copy of Janns netcraft catalog.They have the largest selection of eye screws around.On baits that size,I'd go with .062 diam. 3/4" length..Nathan
