Printers are always a hassle.... That reminds me my 720 for this past quarter is coming up so it's time to do another one... Back when I was tying commercially I always billed my commercial clients with the excise shown separately so that they could re-coup it if the flies were subsequently exported... My retail customers (99% for lures not flies...) never even have a hint that I'm paying excise at all since it's not noted at all on their bills.

 

Speaking of that here's what I'm working on now... and will have 100 of them ready for a local shop in a day or so...

These are the heaviest of the bucktails I make - at one ounce each - locally they're called pilchard jigs...

The heads are elongated and pretty flat.. The finished lures have a side to side action when allowed to sink - then jigged sharply back to the surface. They also work very well when heaved as far as possible and raced back to the boat when fish (dolphin, tuna, bluefish, and all of the mackerels...) are breaking at the surface...

We were using these forty years ago with plastic worms attached- long before butterfly jigs came along.

Aaaaaaaah, flat, that would explain why they look like 6 oncers. I like them. I've never fished a bucktail with that shape but I might have to give them a try. I fish a lot of bucktails in the river during the striper run. Those would be something different to our norm and might be the new secret weapon. Thanks for sharing.

Anyone interested in the leadheads and bucktail jigs I make to order... simply send an email request to [email protected] and you'll get an info sheet with photos and a price list by return mail.... Nothing is painted -all of the heads are powder coated and baked to harden the finish.  They're perfect for someone needing finished heads for tying up as bucktails the way they want them...

shouldnt your offer of selling your jigs be in the "trading floor" area of the forum?

It's a one time mention ... in a thread that's not directly about fishing at all.   Not a big deal.
