I am not in the business of selling jigs but some folks want a certain jig I tie that has done well in tournaments. It is a double flash, double chenille, synthetic hair jig and I get $1.50 each with a min order of a dozen plus shipping/packaging which is about $3.50 to $5.

You won't get rich tying jigs. Maybe make minimum wage for your time if lucky. At least that is my experience. I don't tie many jigs...mostly for friends and I make my own jigheads. I am lucky to have a roofer friends who keeps me supplied in roof flashings so I don't have to buy lead.

Most jigs I see for sale are simple jigs with feathers and one chenille and cost about $.75 to $0.85 each plus shipping/handling. These jigs are easy to tie and can be tied quickly. Once you start adding flash, eyes and multiple colors the price increases.

Good luck! smile
