You're a nasty man Evan.

So question, I was thinking of going the plastics route with mine, but couldn't figure out how to tie it to the shank without distorting the worm. And if you don't tie it in, I would be afraid it'd slide off. How did you secure it to the shank? I gotta try me some! :thumb:

I'm half done and none of you are going to beleave these even after you get them. I had to use what I had here and there was lots of choice but nothing suit able for Jigs SO mine are kind of sort of Jig a mops. and You may certainly fix them or alter them or paint them or throw them as in 'away.' good luck!! Ooh!!you can use them if you really want to. Don't bother sending them back.

A sampling of any yarn, thread or some mylar that I found. who knows what else and some very old jigs that I had no paint for and the color doesn't go well. I'm afraid no one will want to fish these. But they willl be different for sure. Good luck all. how's your imagination. Pictures after they're in the mail.

Jesse I'm lost looked all through here and can't find the address. I've done 15 and they're all coming to you so you'd better duck. I had most of mine made before I saw about size of jig. any way you get what I had cause I'm not buying anything for this stuff. Mine are really ugly and may scare the fish worse than they scare you guys. Using what I have here there is wool yarn acrylic yarn, mohair and alpaca and Polyester and antron. The only yarn I had that I didn't use was the egg yarn which I'll save for another story. You can repaint the heads and dye the yarns and they are bulky so can be trimmed a lot and brushing them out will be the best thing to do. If you find a way to put a handle on them then a mop will be the most practical use. Oh and one thing different than the others, There is not one of them that matches any other so if you use it and loose it, its gone I have lots of yarn but I made no cross reference to anything so you'd have to write your own recipe. Do you reallize if you buy yarn at the knitting shop you get anything from 90 yds to 250 or more yards for about $5.00. If you buy at the fly shop you get 5 yards for about $2.50 so I have a big tub full of skeins of yarn. Okay all in the mail today and Happy fishin!!
