    There's a little over 11 pounds there including the can. Figured while the weather's warm around here I better take advantage of it. I was out of heads to tie. Now to powdercoat them.

    Hey Jigslinger,

    What weight and size hook are you pouring? I was thinking about picking up a mold and some hooks to pour some myself.

    I poured 3/4, 5/8, and 1/2 ounce minnow heads, bullet heads, and eggheads on 2/0 hooks. The 1/2 ounce are shorter shank along with the 5/8 ounce eggheads.

    Been tying a lot, but just poured many more today....I thought why not....pouring and painting is the easy part....but might have to leave it at that if this other catches fish??
    3/4, 1/2 , 3/8 , & a few 1/4

    Good times, Good friends, Great Beer. You can buy all three - But it's always better to invest the time to make your own.
