That was neat. I remember in the early 60's my dad standing over the stove (much to the dismay of my mother) melting lead for our home made sinkers and a special flat jig head that we dressed with white deer hair or marabou that we called a "crappie killer" ha Later on we started adding an Uncle Josh little "V" pork rind.... killers !

Thanks Tom.


It is a good reminder that simpler is often better.




I also remember that they had to have gold hooks to work.


Bucktail still works even without a minnow. Does anyone know the MIL Spec number for the survival kit jig? Recalling the $500 ashtray from the '80s, I bet it would cost $25 to tye a '40s MIL Spec jig today.
