Had a customer send me this pic of a slab caught by his son last year on one of my jigs. He is know pleading to me to tie some for him. He offered 5 bucks per jig!!!. When you see a young fisherman like this it really makes it hard to stay closed :confused:
But I got do whats best for me,,,but d*** this guy makes it really hard.
What a great pic. Guess my jigs did work:rolleyes:

best for you and yours, and your jigs are great, now GET BACK TO TYING !!!!

That's a perfect picture for your label! Good advertising for your "branded" jigs.

Even if that kid was 6 foot 8 300 pounds that would look like a huge fish

It won't take you that long. Have fun and make up a half dz. with teaching pictures of the production steps and give them to the lad. He would never forget the kindness .

I would jump on that offer!!!

Great results from your work of jigs.

Good work gets good results. Maybe you'll find time to make a few. Since I was small i've enjoyed working with my hands and enjoying Gods gift to me. It seems that you too have the gift. I guess it's bittersweet sometimes.

Doc you make a great jig. If you think we're gonna make this easy on ya...guess again.:p

You should post a photo of that $5.00 jig Congrats. Work is for people who don't know how to tie jigs. Just do both.

Ok the little man and you guys talked me into it. They fish with 1/8 oz jigs and I never use them. So I have a bunch to get rid of.
Would not be fare to charge him 5 bucks a jig so his dad and I will work it out.
Heck it is nasty this weekend here anyway and I can't go outside and play. Need to tie some 1/24 and 1/32's for myself anyway
