Glider Jig
Ok I'm needing some help.  I'm wanting to make this jig.
https://www.google.com/search?q=glider+j...Q3_TyZM%3A
on an Arky jig.  Any ideas on getting the blade to adhere to the lead?  There is no place to solder to the hook.
I tried an epoxy but it's not going to work.  Is there any way to do this effectively?

Looking at the pic, it appears a willow blade is integral with the head ie: a mold was custom designed with the blade as a pour insert.

Here I use a JB Weld epoxy.  This might actually work testing will tell the tale.

And this is the plastic I intend to test these with next week.

I'm hoping this will be a decent Red Fish bait next week.

Add a screw?

Looks fragile either way. How about molding in a screw, fix the blade with a nut and then cut of? Would allow the tying to be done before the blade is screwed on.

Does it float?

No it does not float.  Hoping to test it Thursday

The epoxy is holding remarkably good and it powder coats well.
