Tackle Making

I am trying to make a lure patterned after the Double Cowgirl. Can anyone tell me how the "flashaboo" is attached to the wire shaft? Is there a collar under that stuff?

I don't have one handy but I believe that they use a chrome weight that has a recess for attaching skirt material with a piece of surgical tubing. I've used that weight and small zip ties to build mine.

I myself would contact the guys at Thorne Brothers and see what they would suggest. Another idea would be to contact the people at Stamina inc. They sell all the stuff for making lures like that. I would think they would have the best ideas.

I think what you are looking for is called a conehead. If Thorne Brothers doesn't have them then try Netcraft; product number 360-110-002.

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
