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.

"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.
