Glassman, Check the second page of the weapons of bass destruction sticky in the striper room... The Roc makes his own and has a step by step instructional on how to... If he does it, Id say its worth it as he is the man and anything he shows is worth your time learning.

If you fish jigs in the places were they're most likely to catch fish, you're going to go through a lot of them - which makes it very worth your while to pour your own. Plus you can experiment and do things that you can't buy in the store
Example: I just finished tying the bucktail on 2 dozen tin Smiling Bills for Montauk next weekend. - Tin is lighter then lead and allows you to fish shallow rocky water without getting snagged as often while offering a larger profile. Plus it has that sheen that seems to trigger more strikes (I love tin)

I would give jig making a try if I knew how to fish them productivley. I usually just catch weeds and the bottom. maybe once I get out on the boat I will have more luck.
