HI guys, I'm just about getting started with lure making.
I decided to start off with trying to make a jighead mould for myself as the price of jigheads are extremely pricey, so i figured i'd make my own.
Could you please tell me where i can get the hooks for jigheads ?
I can't seem to find them anywhere. even a link to where to buy would be highly appreciated
Easiest way is to take J hooks and bend them after the eye. You cannot use high carbon hooks as they will break. I have done this too and is much easier than trying to obtain hooks, as they are not supplied in SA.
The best hooks due to thinner gauge are the bass worm hooks as they are long and bend easier with good strength. The eye is then twisted 90 degrees if so desired.
