Selling Jigs
I have had several requests on another forum to sell a few jigs. I have always told everybody that I don't do it to sell them, but if they were close enough, I would give them a few, or trade some for a fishing trip....or something similar. I try to point some of these guys to some reputable tiers who do sell them....... But I just got an offer that I don't think I can refuse....It will cover some of my recent purchases of material and such. I have tried to steer the guy to some guys who do it as a business, but he wants some of my jigs.... So... I guess I'll do it.
I never got into this to make a dime on my jigs, it started out as saving money on buying jigs at tackle stores.....which I knew I could make better. Since then.... I have way more jigs than I could probably fish with in a couple of years!! LOL
Maybe its just a one time deal.... who knows, but... I re-coup some of my expenses, and someone else gets to enjoy some of my work...
I know there are lots of guys out there who do much nicer work than I do....and i just don't want to take any business from guys who rely on tying, even if it a small bit.
Anyways.... Guess I'm just wanting to see what some of you guys think about it....

Sure, why not do it. If the other guy made that one better, they would buy from them.

RE: Selling Jigs
I'd say sell them if you can! Would bet that a quarter to half of the active users here sell their jigs somewhere. I have been asked to sell mine a few times now... i've traded for this and that but never have gotten $$$ for any..... and given away WAY too many to family, friends and complete strangers while out fishing.

We had a lengthy discussion on here about what had to be done as far as taxes..... anyone remember where that thread is??? Can't find it at the moment. Huh
