which thread wrapped hook are you using?

I’m using Bass Pro Shop Straight Shank Round Bend hooks in sizes 1/0 and 2/0 for the 4” & 5” plastics, my most used plastic sizes.  Also sometimes use smaller 3” plastics when they get fussy or sometimes way bigger plastics like 6” to 8” plastics when I know hogs are in the area.  I put those on 3/0 or bigger hooks, whatever looks right.

Hooks are wrapped starting with heavy thread like upholstery tread or carpet thread.  Add head cement to the hook shank first to hold the thread firmly in place.  Then add a spiral wrap of something like 40# mono.  Then finish it up by brushing on a thin layer of 2-part clear epoxy.  All lures are glued on with brush-on super glue.

Threads like these are tough for me. While I want to participate I also live in a constant state of paranoia that my favorite lure will become unavailable, so I cannot talk about it.  :wee:

Smart man.

Pak what sort of fish do you catch with those lures??

The first two pics are AVA jigs with hand tied teasers instead of tubes, casts great , especially in the wind. Bottom one is a fluke rig that we use in the deep, glow skirts and beads.

I don’t know what I’d do without a Redfin.  I like to make my own.
