    Anybody cast there own jigs? I have 14 different jig and sinker molds. Wondering if it is worth casting my own?

    Depends on how many you lose. I tie my own flies to ‘match the hatch’ and it is effective but sinkers I buy. Hook cost is enough to preclude casting jigs unless you have a specific one that you can’t buy.

    Got it. I might give it a try just to see if I like it or not.

    bullet maker, I cast crappie jig heads and some split shot. It’s not really cost effective because I end up giving most of them away to friends, but its not too expensive either. #4 hooks about $5.50 per hundred online, so no big investment.

    Sorry for the late reply. Supplies are really not to expensive. Going to give it a try.
