Important Skills to Have!
I put the kids to refurbishing some bucktails this evening.
"OMG! It's like making earings, except on hooks...
If earings had bucktail I mean...
After a quick demonstration on the specifics, Jackie and Ethan knocked out a couple of bucktail jigs, a treble hook with black bucktail in the center surrounded by yellow, and a couple of single hooks with yellow bucktail and red silk wrap.
Ethan had the steady hands, so he was the painter!
Single hook bucktail for Krock Spoon
I like the single hook on Hopkins jigs and silver spoons. Yellow seems to be the preferred color, with white a close second. We will be using them tomorrow at Desoto Fort. Maybe the Spanish Mackerel will be running again!
Wish you were here!
