I'm a lead-head and there is nothing I like casting more than a bucktail jig.

Of course not, it was all wood. A pair of 9" natural colored, bamboo chopsticks with a touch of chartreuse wasabi on the head. ::)

somewhere i have some pretty old eel shaped (bent) chrome plated lead with very long hook and green tubing on it that were given to me.. i have never tried them because they came from a old timer but i bet they would work good. anybody have any or know who made these? they are a little thicker then a pencil and about as long. just bent slightly to give them action.

Pt Jude made a lot of different types of "tins" through the years and the ones with the long hooks and tubing were, from what I understand, for boo fish.

it's real nice, about the size of a large wallet, can fit on my wading belt or in the front pocket of my wading jacket.

DD - You're going to sink with that much "tin" in your pockets, but the CG stuff is VERY nice.

Take a look here:

I really like the bunker because they cast very well and ride up even on a slow retrieve because of the wings.
