I've decided to try brazing my own rings onto some old jigs, having been inspired by some of the threads I've read here and on Senor Tuna. See: http://www.bdoutdoors.com/forums/threads/hopkins-question.574460/#post-3656633. What size rings do I need? I'll be working with Raiders (200 and 125), Salas 6X and 6X Jr., and other similar sized jigs. Pangamaster did a nice job of posting links on all aspects of how to do it. [Forgive me if the answer to my question is in there somewhere, but I didn't see it.] Here are the links he posted for those who might be interested: http://www.senortuna.com/main/showt...howthread.php?t=31648&highlight=brazing+class http://www.senortuna.com/main/showthread.php?t=11107&highlight=ringing+hooks http://www.bdoutdoors.com/forums/th...6x-trebles-or-making-it-a-single-hook.499038/ http://www.mcmaster.com/# I can buy butt rings from Rosco's: http://www.roscoinc.com/fishing-tackle/product-detail/american-made-stainless-steel-butt-ring 1300 ROSCO BUTT RING 1300 ROSCO BUTT RING Item #: 1300 Description These stainless steel rings, also called "jump" rings are very popular with lure manufacturers and are commonly used on ringed hooks.
