Hand Tied jigs (wire ties)
« on: 01/14/17 18:55 UTC »
Hey my fishy friends.

For those of you hand tying your jig skirts, what tool are you using for the wire?  I have used two pliers, but its too cumbersome for me.  I hate the rubber collars- not good for customer service if you know what I mean, and looking to wire- tie.  I know there's a tool that will spin the wire, but can't remember details.

Your welcome and when you get a pair, if you have any problems operating them, let me know. There's a bit of a curve with them. Not real intuitive.

Here is a video I made on wire tying a swim jig but it works on any type of jig.
