Steve - those are great looking jigs and it gives me something to shoot for as I am just starting out tying my own. One question I have for you is what type of bobbin do you use and whip finisher?

I have a ceramic bobbin that was fairly cheap from Amazon and it worked great until this past weekend. It started cutting the thread I am using and I noticed that the ceramic insert was cracked.

Also my whip finisher seems small as I am having a hard time getting to spin over larger jig heads.

Re: Whip finisher - Instead of a whip finisher for jigs, I tie a loop of monofilament around my vise, so it is hardy and I don't have to look for it. To create a whip finish to my jig, I just put the loop over the thread behind the jig head, wrap over the loop 3-4 times, cut the thread, put it through the loop, pull the loop, cut off the excess thread, drop the loop, and I'm done. Similar to same application use when wrapping a rod. Can do it in no time, faster than trying to explain it. Really.

Bill - that is a good idea I do something similar when tying in peeps and servings on my bow. I may try that next time and see how it goes. I am pretty good at whip finishing and it only takes me a few seconds to do if I don't have to keep unhooking the thread from the jig eye.
