Bucktail jig heads
Below are standard bucktail jig head colours. Custom jig head colours are available too. For instance, a bucktail jig head looks beautiful if coated with a clear UV base (showing the original colour of the lead replacement, which looks like lead), highlighted with a top body colour and belly colour.

How long does it take to make these lures?
I don’t keep stock. I make lures according to your need. This means that it’s not a quick fix lure solution.
Each lure is cast individually, then heated over an open flame, then dipped three times into a fluid bed containing powder paint. This is usually white, but you can choose your base colour from what’s available (or choose the translucent UV coating).
Once the base coat has been applied, the lure receives its accent colour (only if you want an accent colour). The lure is heated three times, each time coated with the accent colour.
Once the accent colour has been added, the belly colour (usually red) follows. The lure is heated in the belly region and three coats of powder coating applied.
Once the coating’s finalised, the lure goes into the oven, where it bakes for 45 minutes.
After baking, the lure is tied with real bucktail hair. This is usually at least two colours; a white at the bottom with an accent colour at the top.
Once the tying is complete, the lure is dipped into a clear enamel, then hung to dry, after which it’s dipped again, and hung to dry again.
Once the clear enamel is dry, the lure is ready to be sent to you.
Because the lure making process is so involved, your jig head (even if it is only one) could take a few days to complete. Rest assured that, as far as I’m concerned, you will receive your lure. And it’s worth the wait.
