My Lingcod collections

The lures/flies are slightly more than 6 inches.

I go overboard with this squidy pattern. All lures/flies are untested, I hope it works.

Excellent work! I especially like the jigs that look like B52 style bucktail jigs.

This mold is from Shawn Collins. I got from ebay. It's 8/10/12 ounces mold. Do-It goes up to 8 Oz only. I also have a Do-It mold in 5/6/8 ounces. I'm starting to experiment with Bondo mold and make my own. Shawn Collins have some nice molds, but expensive. Do-It usually is on the light side, not much choice if you want some heavy stuff for boat fishing. It cost around $3.50 to make a jig, much cheaper than to buy one that cost over $10. The mold will pay for itself over time.

Let me know if you need a product tester for those flies! I really like those squidy looking ones on the left side of third picture.

nice. the deceivers would work real well

i used to dabble in this making wood surf lures for stripers. My experiments failed, made them too big.

Bondo molds is not the way to go. Not easy to work with, poor detail and molds warp after a dozen pours. It is also quite toxic. Mold making silicone is the way to go. Something like GT Products GT-1364. Cost about $8 of material to make a mold. A gallon of this stuff costs about $120,

Thanks for your suggestion jcool. I tried the silicone mold putty before when I did my first mold. It cost $33 per pound. The settle time is too quick, and I wasted $33 and did not get a good mold out of it. I haven't tried the pouring type silicone RTV as you mentioned. The gallon of Bondo cost me $16 at Home Depot. I have made 2 molds so far out of Bondo and it turns out quite well. It cast fine for me. As for longivity, I don't know. So far, I cast 5 jigs out of one of the mold, and did not observe any warping yet. I made it roughly 1.5" thick per halves.

My 2 cents. Good luck. I'm in Oakland if you want to check out my silicone molds.
