Home made Jigs

Got bored today, was baby sitting so I decided to sacrific 2 old knife handles and had a crack at making some jigs.

definiately not a master piece, but we'll see what the fish think.

I bent a subtle S shape in the the handles to see if I could depart some action. Gonna test them in my mates pool.


Front, the green, blue and gold speckles don't show up to well. Going to buy a stick on eyes


The back, polished the chrome


Side view with slight bend.



And the second one, the reflective foil is stuck on with thin double sidded tape. Will stick eyes on the one too.

Crezz Mate

if your interested I can post a tut, it takes about 10 mins to make one, and the knives cost 20-50c ea at Salvo's,

At best, production would be sporadic as I'd rather be on the water.
