    My rule of thumb is to only cut on the tied in side and adjust length that way. Fish are dumb though, they'll eat about anything sooner or later!

    Some feathers will pop very easily once tied in so maybe give them a little tug before you tie them in, other than that, go wild!

    Like most things in fishing...not always, but sometimes. A smaller thinner profile can turn the bite on especially in the winter. When I tied commercially I had customers that would order a couple...

    Not sure 100% what you're looking for but you can have a company make printed bags for soft plastics but they want a 3-5000 minimum order. Only viable if you sell a lot.

    I've used a Griffin Odyssey Spider vice for 13 years or so now tying everything from #10 hooks up to thick 8/0 and 10/0 saltwater hooks. No need for anything else for what I do. It was pretty cheap.

    Maybe try a brass brush to get any lead pieces stuck to the face that you don't see. Lay it on something flat to see if its warped. You can also try a clamp. If none of those help, time for a new one.

    No problem. I tried to find a picture but since Photobucket went crazy I lost most of my jig pictures. Works great over/in brush and under bridges for me.

    Could be a water color thing. I tie orange head/coffee nylon body/yellow tail and it's one of my favorites. Crappie eat plenty of little 1-2" bream throughout the year.

    They'll fit in a regular mold with zero to minimal modification (carefully close and hit with rubber mallet, or a dremel). There are a bunch of options for round head no collar molds from Do It.

    Clear with black and silver flake (salt and pepper) has always been a fantastic color for me. What's really amazing is catching bream on plastics that long. I can't even catch 'em on a 1.75". :Rofl
