    Default new mold

    got a 4 oz flutter jig mold and got a few painted up. not sure of the action yet but should work for bottom fish to a hundred feet and agressive salmon in the salt.

    Those things look sweet! Silvers and bass will tear them up. I obviously need to have more patience when I paint.

    Default Nice looking jigs

    Those jig look dynamite.You did an outstanding job with the colors and paint.Where did you get the mold ?Looks like an interesting project/hobby.And how about the lead ?I've made a lot of anchors using tire weights and coffee cans.Wouldn't mind trying my hand at something more productive.

    mark,

    i got the lead off a hospital job i worked on a couple years ago and trade some form time to time for jigs. the mold you can get from here http://www.do-itmolds.com/

    it is a fun project and a good way to burn time when you arent fishing .
