Nice job, Shaunm81! Some 3" or 4" twister tail grubs would go fantastic with those.

Those are very nice looking jigs. I'm new to pouring and having trouble with the WEY375 wire. Do you all have any suggestions to keep them from loosening up. My pours seem clean with little clean up. I've tried bending the bend to more angle, but it does not set deep enough in the head.

Thank you everyone.  Superharmonix im using #1 size sickle hooks.  Venom welcome to the forums and to answer your question im not exactly sure what could be going on with you with them being loose like that.  What mold are you using ? and are you sure your using the correct wire form for your mold? They have the wey375 and a wey525  form.  I almost got that mixed up when I ordered my mold. Are you using soft Lead or hard Lead ?Im not exactly sure what could be going on with yours.  I hope you can get it figured out.  A lot of very helpful people on this board so hopefully someone else can be of more help then I am. Thanks again everyone
