fortunately I have vises
« on: April 11, 2016, 11:01:21 PM »
Been on a jig tying kick
wondering if anyone on this site is at the vise often
or just tye a little
either way I been tying for a few yrs and now it's a addiction...
heard a saying before ...unfortunately I have vises,fortunately I have vises 
put my new lee pot to the test today...made 120 panfish jigs today from scrap collar lead I had
kicking around...mainly 1/16 some 3/32...so another addition to my madness ..as much as I'm thinking about this mold and that mold...I'm going to stay with just the one for awhile ...my plan is to burn out a bunch of each size(1/16-5/8oz)then just be able to reach for what I need when I need it...chime in
let's talk tying

Fortunately, I have vises....and, a melting pot with a bunch of different molds. Along with most tying materials for jigs. Unfortunately, finding time to pour and tie up jigs these days is the problem. Rock, it's a lot of fun creating your own jigs to see if the jigs really do indeed work after putting in the time to make them.  8)

I used to tie a lot of flies something like 15 to 20 years ago but I ended up with so many flies I didn't know what to do with them. I went from dry flies to wet flies to streamers to specialty flies and salmon flies just for fun. Gave most of them away. Now I tie something when I get a pattern stuck in my head or just want to try something. I never poured lead heads but I made a few homemade jig molds from time to time. really nothing special, mostly ice fishing jigs. Good luck with your new obsession and I hope to see lots of pics of cool looking jigs!

I get on the vise a soon as we lose the ice.  ;D I prolly tie hundreds of flies every year. It's just something I like and enjoy doing. When you or a friend catches a fish on a fly that you yourself made it makes it that much more special.

I tye some ice flies.but most of my tyes are jigs..1/16-5/8...
I guess my ice flys are more of a jig as well but they seem to work late season I always have one on for the shallow perch thru the ice
gave a few jigs away last yr and got guys wanting more...it's a good thing..mainly walleye fisherman...I've done clousers just never even use them ...made red tail dace..and emerald shiners...I still have a couple patterns I'm shy of even showing ....that's what cool about having your own vise...tye whatever ,whenever....good luck Nemo on your gear 8)
