Ditto the vittles kudos. I for one didn't expect a full gourmet spread, but that's what Cookie and Cowboy dished up. I didn't dare accept a takehome bag, because it would have made my wife extremely jealous.

Also dittos on the amount of detail and tedious work that goes into making something as ostensibly simple as a flig. I tried to estimate the number of hours involved in making the hundreds of fligs Pat showed us. My admittedly limited mind is boggled.

My compliments to the host for the excellent meal put together and providing a venue site for this gathering. I miss the farm life with all the security animals, geese, chickens, Guinea hens, and of course the beagle, any peacocks around? Whistle The memories of growing up as a kid.

A big thanks to Pat for sharing his knowledge & passion of FLIG making. This truly generated interest in us in making our own and experiment with other designs.

Once again its nice putting names to the faces of some and meeting up with others I know.

Thanks to all

Good to see you again Rocky. Glad you could make it. And thanks for your assistance...in lighting up my life with your super little TAC flashlight.


About the hours. You have golf. I don't. So when I am not fishing I gots tacklecraft projects. As my wife says, it "keeps me off the streets and out of trouble". As you observed, I have a lot of time to fill. So fligging around helps.

Pat, if those paint fumes cost you one brain cell per flig, you're in a world of hurt by now! It was my pleasure to illuminate your lure-ific legerdemain.

(Next time, I expect union rates for stage lighting.)

I'll be happy to split what I charge with you 50-50.


I work cheap and I'm worth it.


Brain cells? Now where did I put those? Flying high and fligging high. Alla same differments.

Thanks for putting this together. Great information, great food and met some new people. Hopefully can put the information to use and meet up with the people on the water.

Thanks CowboyPirate and TubeDude. I had a great time. It was great getting to know everyone and put a few faces with the names. I am excited to try to make a few of those fligs myself. I can't imagine it makes financial sense but it looks fun!

If you really want to make some, I can help you out with a few foam plugs to start...rather than spend for a complete foam pad. After that, a few small bottles of paint and some hooks is about it.


Let me know if you wanna come over and get a "starter kit".

Pat,
Where and what kind of paint do you use? Do you use a brush for all of your lures, or do you have a little airbrush? I learned a lesson today about color, I'd become complacent and have been using a couple colors that seem to always treat me well.... Today after being shut out I tried a new color scheme and the fish just lit up the finder and the bites went wild... I've never seem color be so important as it was today, so I'm starting to believe your comment of putting a yellow stripe down the pale perch making such a big difference... Also I think it was you that also mentioned when it's cloudy and overcast to fish dark colors... That was so true today... Anyway thanks Jeff

I almost exclusively use the vinyl jig paints by CS Components. They have all the good colors...plus you can custom mix to get special colors. They are available through Sportsmans and most online outlets.


I tried using airbrushes in the past. They work well for some applications. But for the special patterns I make...on smaller lures...hand painting is the only way to get what you want.


Attaching a writeup on painting jig heads. Pretty much the same for fligs and other lures.
