Well... the oilfield is really SLOW right now! My vessel has been at the dock in south Louisiana for over a month now, with no real prospects on a job until July. I know everyone likes the low gas prices... but.. it's now beginning to hit the industry hard!! Nuff said...
So.... with all of my spare time... I am painting up jig heads like crazy.

did up 100 1/8 ball heads with recessed eyes.... these are my favorite to fish with

just now starting on some 1/10 ultra minnows with #2 hook... I usually use the #4, but wanted a longer profile on some. These are my favorite to paint after the fish heads I used to get from RonDon...unfortunately...cant get them any more.. :-(

side by side with the larger 1/4

Plus all of the Larger Ultras that I posted previously....
After the 100 something smaller ultra minnows are done.... it goes down to 1/32... I have about 300 ball heads to do. I'm gonna finish up before my hitch is up it looks like... guess I need to pace myself! LOL

Nice work! I guess you and me are the only ones wanting higher oil prices, just I am on the other end with properties I have a small interest in. At least I have a lot of them, but also know the checks will get smaller and many getting the drilling put off a while.
