Painted Jig heads

Painted Jig heads

I have been painting my jig heads with a ceramic like paint called Pebeo Porcelaine 150. It is water soluble, no smell and durable. I use a tooth pick to apply the paint. You let it dry and then bake it in the oven. In the picture you will see the 4 colors I like to use.

Abyss Black #41
Peridot Green #30
Ivory(white) #43
Agate Orange #04 or Saffron Orange #03

You can paint any metal or glass.

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” - Benjamin Franklin

"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." -
Col. Robert Venables 1662

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
