Wish me well, fellas:



Going for a new personal best - seeing how many jigs I can tie in one day. Not quite half way there.... a BIG order in every since of the word. 300 4th oz jigs...... all the same pattern (now that's what I call a confidence/go-to bait!!!). I know I could tie 8ths or 16ths much quicker... still will be fun to see how many I can knock out before tomorrow.

Taking lunch break now.

Just got another order for 60 jigs. Not such a bother until I can't catch up. I like shipping my jigs on the same day they're ordered but this is getting a bit difficult. Back to work, no time for a break now. Gonna try to finish all orders by day's end.

Have only tied 20-30 since my initial post.... busy in many ways, not just jigs. bang Finishing these orders doesn't seem as likely now. Would have to paint 50 and then tie them after finishing 150 of these (painted). 200 total this late in the day.... my money is on the sandman.

Watching both kids by myself also doubles my tying time... thumb Back to the races..... I'll update the thread tonight or in the morning. Personal best slipping out of sight now... hah!

Prayers musta helped out. cheers Didn't tie for an hour after posting and then got interrupted. After it was all said and done, I was 115 jigs down from knocking out the big order 3.5 hours ago. Just finished off the last jig ... didn't get around to my other order but will knock it out in the morning. At one point, I was averaging 48 seconds per jig, which is pretty quick for quarter oz/double wrapping.

Damage for today was 232 quarter oz jigs in 7.5 hours (estimated time), with ~200 packaged now. I'm happy with it considering all the distractions and other work that arose.
