    How do you get started in doing that?

    up here in ky we go to walmart at the end of fishing season . we go buy all the cheap plastic baits in what color we like. I made a couple molds since im a tool maker and i use a old microwave and a big glass bowl to heat it up and stir a lot . and the more you heat a pour the jigs the plastics gets more aplyable .. or you can take search Sneed fishing baits

    this years supply with a few twist,
    finished tying, well really out of painted jig heads, and no more sleeves for the king leaders till the mail comes....I have went to tying bigger jigs for the reds or jacks when they come through or maybe even a cobe..... but this is the wrong time of the year, I think live bait would be the best for that now

    It's been fun doing them, and hopefully funner using them, I actually found a few of the first I did that didn't get included in the care package sent south, and these I think are a lot better ....learning anyway...... I cut the hair off the old ones and redid them , changed the nail polish to add some flash and color to the thread..... I hope it makes a difference , if not.... oh well .....I clear nail polish the threads anyway , as long as it doesn't hurt the bite

    Looking good Bill! FYI, super glue works good on the thread. The cheap stuff works fine. The main thing to look for is try to find the stuff with the smaller nozzle. A little goes a long way and it soaks in good to seal it.

    Even fingernail polish works in a pinch to bind down loosened threads.
    But a couple of drops of 5-Minute epoxy helps protect the threads from sharp teeth ;-)

    I use both, first the super glue,let dry and then apply the nail polish(with glitter this time) and coat the entire thread area, only one shot doing it, so why take any chances of failure
    thanks for the responses

    that jig sure looks familiar ....I have gotten a little better on the tying ....at least I think so, the fish won't know the difference
