Help me with silicon jig skirts

Recommended Posts

Picked up an ear ball lure mold and want to star making some of those silicon skirts for them. Tried my hand at bucktail but I need some serious practice with that. I'm having issues with finding the skirt materials. I want to make something like this. I cant find any info on the bands though. All I can find is the band that just clamps around the skirt. I like the look of what I think is called a hub skirt where all of the skirt points back from the jig and none of it goes forward. I found what it looks like I need but for some reason I cant find it on any of the real deal tacklemaking sites. I only found what I am assuming is cheap Chinese ones off of amazon ebay and alibaba. There is no info on how to make skirts with them, what tools to use or what size they are. They will be used on large saltwater jigs. I would also like to know where I could find those large fins that would be a nice touch but not as important.

Thanks
