RE: The Auto
hope to tie a few of these when I get home from work this morning. thinking about a couple 1/16 on a size 6 sickle for deeper shellcrackers. I could see a peice of worm on one of these too.

RE: The Auto
Hahaha, I remember LedHed stole that custom 1/32 football mold on eBay - might be the only one in existence.

RE: The Auto
This mold is a Do-it 101 1/32nd. It was modified by Robert at Crazy Angler when he did mold work. You can probably do one yourself with a drill press and a tapered cutting bit.

Hj - the super deal I got was a Collins football with 500 BLNs, and I don't bass fish. Jungle poured some of them.

RE: The Auto
OK, corrected. I thought the 1/32 footballs pics looked heavier than stated. Man, that mold is golden!

Actually, I think the Do-it 1/16 football head with collar trimmed off would be about the same size. Might need a mod for small hooks tho, and the head might be a bit loose on the hook after a trim.

I tied a half dozen for a buddy that is going on a float down the shanendoah river here in Va. only I tied them on a fly hook and a black brass bead, they looked great that way, still using my old centepede legs which are probably silicone, not sure. also tied him up some clouser flies for the smallmouths.

RE: The Auto
LedHed those are superb! Do you know where i could get any of that reptilian rubber? Those do look good enough to sell, but if i were to sell them, i would get permission and credit you, as well as give you a cut, haha... of course, i wont be tying anything anytime soon. but once again fantastic!!

RE: The Auto
WTG Baxter - great lookin tye & catch!

Welcome PH to JC from SoCal. The reptile rubber comes from lure parts on line (formerly Stamina). Can't lay claim to anything thrown out on the internet - if you can make money selling the jig - go for it. Thnx for the interest

RE: The Auto
Sonny, we had a big family get-together and one of my distant cousins is a big bass fisherman. He snatched up a bunch of the Autos I had tied for yellow perch. He said they were going to hammer the crap out of them. If he sends me pics, I will forward them on.
Never say, “It’s good enough to catch fish”, because fish eat worms and marshmallows…you want to be better than that. Practice until you can do it right. - Charlie Craven
