    thanks Bob, I was hoping anyway....
    still cold up here and need to put the pencil points on them before I start welding....still pouring some lead in the basement, making the butterfly jigs....should start on a ling jig mold out of aluminum....I might get lucky when there, I have a few already, and only really need one(hanging on a rod)....might just buy that one....I'll see what selection J&M has when I am there.

    Re: Making pier gaff

    PW brought it in the other day,I'll have Tom post it next week,or maybe Fin could stop by and take a pic.I've been going can till can't the last three weeks moving in to the new 5800sqft warehouse,resetting the sales floor,tripling our work area,and past couple days I've been busting out 10 layers of firewall between the old stock room and the sales floor to increase our retail area by 2832 sqft.That now puts us a little over 23,000.Who'da thunk a teen age kid who grew up on GSP,hated school,but could build the hell out of a fishing pole would be the owner of what is now one of the largest saltwater stores in the country.Thanks to ALL of you for helping live my dream,once again,thanks!!

    Re: Making pier gaff

    BINGO!!!!!!.Total weight is 3.3 lbs, but needs to be a pound heavier,and is 18" tall with a 4" gap between lead and point.5/16 was used but 3/8's is whats needed.I think the lead mold was made out of a cone shaped cardboard thread spool but I'm sure you could fab one up.The lead needs to be tapered.I'll be your first customer if you decide to sell some.
