Is the mold a 1/4 3/8 1/2?
You could tie hair on it or use a skirt along with plastic.
A great jig all in all.

This looks to be the same mold https://store.do-itmolds.com/Arky-Style-JigbrSz-14-38-12brHk-730-or-575brCollar-Ball_p_1055.html

The way that mold orientation is it would next to impossible to put a wire form in.
If you like that shape of head here is a spinnerbait mold.

Welcome aboard C@tch.

That's another oldie of a mold. Its a spinner bait mold. Orange handles are a give-away as to age. I'm not sure if Do-It sells a wire form for that mold or not. It will take a 730 style hook.

The mold can be used to make a plain Arky style flipping jig with a weed guard by simply using a hook and an BPH-532 pin insert to create the weed guard pocket, then trimming the flash on the jig heads, painting and finally gluing in an FG-40 weed guard.

The hooks, weed guards and the insert pins are all still available for this mold so I'd use it as a flipping jig mold and forget about the spinner aspect.
