    Hey ya'll...

    I am wondering / looking for a sinker mold that only makes 1/80 and 1/64 oz lead head jigs.

    I use these for catching my bait as they don't gut hook 99% of the time... However, I am refusing to pay .25 to .50 per hook...

    Any and all help would be appreciated. Right now all I can find is one that makes tons of different sizes, not meeting my needs...

    Thanks again,
    Chris

    I've always had too much trouble trying to pour leadheads that small, so I use a completely different method. I scrounge an old small electric motor and salvage the wire coil out of it. Then I use the fine copper wire to wrap around the hook. A single wrap from the head back along the shank makes a really light weight; for something a little heavier, I wrap wire up next to the eye to make a jighead out of wire.
