REPAINTING IRONS IS IT WORTH IT
Has anyone ever tried to repaint old tadys or salas irons. Is it best to just leave them alone or junk them. I picked up a box of used ones for a good deal and it has some that are a little beat up. I thought what the hell mabe I could fix them up a little. If anyone has found a good paint to use that sticks well or a good color throw up a pick lets see the good work. Thanks all

if it swims well."Government is involved in Organized Crime. The IRS, FTB, and Board of Equalization take money from wage earners by force. If citizens resist, the IRS, et al, are authorized to use even MORE force to collect EVEN MORE money"

oh, yes, keep them and have fun painting them. Put reflective tape on them, mix and match!!!! great thread. I am over on the islands now but when I get back to So Cal I will post pics of some of mine. Remember there are no rules to painting, the fish dont care, the people who sell them are really trying to hook you. Ya there are colors for sure that work better, Go for it.

While I will switch the hooks out I don't repaint jigs. I don't think the fish mind and beat up jigs give of the impression that they get bit.

if you have the time, $ and patience, why not? it's like gettin' your rods re-wrapped cuz the wraps are all worn 'n ugly. hell, they still catch fish right?

Is it the pretty color of the jigs that get them bit or the action they swim with? Leave them ugly and let them keep the battle scars.
