Default Received My Do-It Molds Poison Tail Jig Mold!

I was so excited when UPS showed up at my door last night with a box for me!

It was my poison tail jig mold from Do-It Molds!

It's mold # 3420 and it has 3 cavities. It makes 1 of each, 1/8oz w 1/0 EWG hook, 1/4oz with 2/0 EWG hook and 3/8oz with 3/0 EWG hook.

I also got the Lee Precision Melter and a ladle.

I cranked it up and melted down some lead last night and made a few jigs. This is going to be fun!

I still need to buy some paint and some skirt material but all in due time

I have both of the PT molds. They make a fantastic jig but are hard to pour.

For skirt tabs have a look at www.fishingskirts.com. Just be careful the first order I made was for 800 tabs and my wife came in the study while I was placing it. Instead of having a fit she wanted 600 of her own.

The bands and $4 tool to put them on is are well worth the price.

You can get by with 3 or 4 basic colors to start. Powder paint is much cheaper by the pound than in those itty bitty 2 oz bottles.

Don't forget to check out my tutorial on building a fluid bed to paint those jig heads.

That EWG hook does not work very well for me? Check out the other 28 and 30 degree hooks on Barlows. I second Jig Mans comments about the powder paint! I have a bunch of gray and pearl white I will not use so what do you have to trade?

The Mustad 91768 just does not work well as a jig hook for me? The hookup ratio and amount of lost fish is a lot higher than with other hooks.

For that mold I would try the 32886 for flippin and heavy swim jigs or the 32724 for light Wisconsin style swim jigs.

there is a site called www.powderbythepound.com you just have to sift thru all the available colors i found most of mine in the standard colors there and they work great! 10.99 a pound and up is alot better than what you can get from cs coatings even with their wholesale program and more choices!!
