Jig head stash
« on: 04/01/24 13:57 UTC »
I went and checked my stash of heads to restock my tackle bag and I had way more done than I remembered!! 107 bags of assorted painted and 30 bags of unpainted.  Guess I'm set for a while!!

Fishing tackle falls in line with wood clamps, money and beauty. You can never have enough of any of them.

After seeing that stockpile I felt sorta bad, so I had to pour another two dozen 1/16 oz freestyle jigs without the wire keeper and a #4 hook. They are powder coated and in the oven baking at present. From there on to the vice for some marabou and chenille dressings.

I could pour another 20000+ with all the hooks I have.

I can relate! I did no business last year with my wife passing, and am now trying to get back into pouring and running my business and was rooting through some boxes the other day. I don't know how many hundreds of jigs I had sitting, but it was a lot more than I remembered having poured!   ::)

I also have no idea how many hooks I have sitting here, but it's a bunch too! I would guess it's more than 100,000 of various styles & brands. I'm not counting them, that's for sure!

Now, if I can find the ones I need when I need them!  :-[

I may have a few, but that would be all I have left, a few.
