I don't have issues with them pointing in the same direction. So long as they are assembled properly they will face each other.Thanks Benny
So you don't have any issues with some of the hooks pointing the same direction?
I suppose it is a matter of how they are put together....what assist cord is used etc.... Some of the sets I have are tied with a lighter white line and they seem to be prone to twisting etc.
One example are the Tady slow pitch jigs which are I believe meant to have a pair on the bottom.
Another couple of jigs I have noticed this on are the Nomad Buffalo jig and the Nomad Gypsea. Bottom hooks on the Buffalo....and top hooks on the Gypsea. This is interesting because they are not radically different shapes or looks. It has to be some small difference in the way they are weighted.
That is possible. And I could be imagining thingsYou give manufacturers too much credit.
What material is that you served them with? Looks sharp. I make my own, but am always interested in other ways to skin the cat. Thanks.I did because of the pandemic lockdown, nothing better to do for almost a year. Wants to learn/try “Serve and coated” style but don’t want to invest in a FlyTying Vise. If the lockdown extent again maybe I will
I bring two of these above pictures Shimano bags stuffed full on board on my trips. Mesh allows for rinsing after use, then setting in the sun until dry. I believe the ability to rinse and dry is essential in inhibiting rusting and dulling of hooks vs storing in a plastic box or zip lock bag contraption. I do not like having all my jigs set up with hooks for a variety of reasons. Safety is the first, as these bags can allow the assist hooks to leak out the side at times and they can stick on the fabric. I also NEVER use hooks on the tail end of the jig as I'm 90% /10% speed jigging to SP jigging. I also have numerous rods on board (sometimes up to 10) , lighter rods will have a 4/0 hook setup for smaller jigs, medium rods will have 5/0 or 6/0, and the heaviest rod for the biggest/heaviest jigs will have a 7/0 hook setup, and I'll use split ring pliers to change jigs - it's faster than cutting and re-tying line and losing 3-6 inches of fluoro per change out of lure. Having and using quality split ring pliers is a no-brainer for my environment. Benny's bag from Brazil looks like it has a ton of real estate for jigs, but for local availability I recommend the Shimano. YMMV. Good luck.Thanks for all the replies, and the rollup Benny showed looks pretty awesome, but I think the Jig bag/case is going to fit my needs best. Anybody have any experience with either of these?
