My favorite part of jig making is getting to make custom colors. I like the challenge of meeting someone's standards and I enjoy seeing something new. I'll admit, I get a little tired of pouring 10,000 of the same chartreuse jigs in a day, and to see what someone's imagination can come up with is always a welcomed surprise.

It's nice to see you making baits again. I also love making plastic baits. I just wish you would tell me how to make them as tough as yours. noidea

I just figured I would post some of my favorites. I'm getting to the point where I can have fun with jig making again (and not just treading water all of the time) so I thought I would share some photos. I always see so many cool hand ties on here, but not a lot of plastics.

I appreciate it guys. I've always drooled over some of the creations I see on here, so I thought I would chime in too. For some reason I've always thought of this section as strictly hand tied jigs, and then I realized, well, I am a jig maker too.

Thanks again for the kind feedback, everyone. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else comes up with for 2017!

I wish. I was in the process of getting all that together when I had to shut everything down due to a position change at work. That's all been put on the back burner for now because I don't have the time anymore cry

You are absolutely right, Todd. My cousin was fooling around with a color, trying to achieve a look he had in his head. Well, it didn't turn out as planned, but we both absolutely loved it and are trying to make it a stock item.

Catfish-hunter, first let me say "thanks" for the kind feedback. I do remember those days of TFF Specials under our old name Lights Out Tackle. I had to change the name due to being threatened by former NFL burnout Sean "Lights Out" Merriman of the San Diego Chargers.

As for the TFF Specials, I still give away a couple thousand free baits per year. I can't make baits for as cheap as I used to though, as this is now part of my career and the cost of materials has only gone up. I try to repay everyone on here the best I can with in-depth reports and giveaways, but the TFF has helped me tremendously over the years, and I don't know if I can ever repay that debt.

That's it,I remember now. The TFF color was "the guy" or something and you made a special TFF pour each year so everybody be could get that color that wasn't sold. I wasn't talking about the freebies,I remember those too. Websites looking good. Making quality products. thumb
