A breezy day (good for ventilation) and some inspiration by Dsmdave today sent me to my garage to make some perch jigs.
I often use old sinkers that I either find or are donated to me by my friends. This one here can make about 20 perch jigs:
Today I used two Do-It molds:
And poured twenty 1/16 and 1/8 oz. jigs:
This was the first time I have used the horsehead mold.
Next came the paint:
Like Dsmdave, I used powder paint for the jig bodies. For the eyes on the horsehead jigs I used the acrylic hobby paint. I dab it on with a finishing nail head.
Then I had to attach the spinner blade to the horsehead jigs. That took more time than I would have liked. I also used stick-on eyes for the round jigs.
The results -- twenty perch jigs:
Now I just need to find the perch.
