Your mixing living rubber and silicone. Sometimes this goes well and sometimes it doesn't. Living Rubbers is a little more trouble to take care of. It does not like rubber trailers, the rubber banding material, contact with silicone and being out in the open air in a jig box. The skirts will become gummy if not taken care of properly. The rattle bands are bad about doing this. That is why I designed my Baby Doll jig with rattling eyes.
- Remove trailers when finished fishing.
- Rubber holds scent excellent; so keep them dosed while fishing.
- Place jig in Dawn Dish soap solution after fishing to remove the oils before storing them away.
- Let the jig dry completely before storing.
- Sprinkle lightly with Baby Powder before storage.
- Use some type of air tight zip binder and I even put each jig in it's individual 4m 3/3 sealable bag then store in zip binder.
The PLUS of Living Rubber:
- Different strand weight and width give different action for presentations.
- Rubber holds Scent.
- Rubber floats; so you can bulk up a heaver jig with a big hood and fish shallower with it; as you can control the fall of the jig.
- The floating Rubber continues to move when the jig is at rest.
