Modified Flutter jig mold.

#1
Things I do during the COVID-19 lockdown, make fishing lures of course. I modded the 5 oz flutter jig mold. Not sure how well it works yet, since we are in a lockdown. I'm going to have a bunch of lures and flies by the time the lockdown is over.

Hey, you're back! Yes, I added the keel. I have no idea how well it will work. I haven't gone out to party boat because of COVID-19. Anyone wants to try, I have a couple finished in mackerel pattern. It's going to be a little over 5 ounces for the jig.

I use UV resin. It's pricey, but no waste. Instant cure, so I don't have to turn it. I just don't have the patient to wait for epoxy to cure. On big jigs, assist hook is easy to make because you can get a hollow core braided line. I guess pictures showing the process is easier than to describe in words. I'll post how I make assist hook later when I have time.

I spent time searching on various methods and I found this method to be easiest.
