I wanted to post the images as large as possible so the imperfections and room for improvement can be seen....... These are 1oz and 3/4oz Lures....So far I am using sz 2 treble hooks for the 1oz lures and sz 4 treble hooks for the 3/4oz lures........

I used to have the same issue until I thin the glue. After I applied the glue, I let it dried out for about 2 minutes or so before I slab them together. Obviously, you can't thin the glue if it's from a spray can. Just be easy on the glue. Spray both the lure and the foil and let it dry for 2 minutes or so, then slab them together. I'm getting 99% success rate this way with the heat transfer foil that I have. Good luck with yours. The most important part is to let the glue dry thoroughly. It should be tacky and not runny to the touch.

There are SO MANY schools of thought when it comes to lures like this.......Do you tie the line directly to the eyelet?........Do You add a Split Ring and tie to the ring?.......Do you add a Split Ring AND a Swivel?............DECISIONS.........DECISIONS

Lol The way I look at it is if the jig doesn't have much action or if they are really small, I put a split ring. It takes some testing. I put barrel swivels if I want the thing to spin while reeling.
