 I thought if I just made one all over cover then it would be heavy and a arsehole to pull over, so thought I'd do it in 3 pieces. Also I wanted the road cover seperate so it can be used for over nighting as well as road travel.

Hey Worksux, great idea, having it domed on like that.  My big Youvella just has one of those kneeing pads glued onto it, but with a MAF size chart stuck on it, so it gets messed up during a session.
Are you interested in taking orders?  Where are you based?
Cheers, Simon

I decided it was time to rig a few new jigs and that gave me the opportunity to look at others and inspect the business end, in particular those assist hook rigs that use wire and are covered in black heat shrink.

Mine looked a bit tired after being smashed by a few couttas and well the wire looked a little bit like it was fatiguing around a very tight bend around a small ring...  also underneath the heatshrink I found the hooks (chemically sharpened) were corroding...so I ain't gonna use that... I thought buggar it lets make some new ones.
 
The new jigs needed some so instead of buying them I got the good old 316 49 strand 750lb Stainless...not coutta or Mako is gonna bite me offOuch
 
I notice alot of the assist's sold in packets come with short rigs and with the bigger jigs I want to try with a longer assist to at least cover the middle section as I am sure most fish hit the long jigs about midships more so than the top/head area...just my thoughts...
 
So I formed the loops around a stainless thimble, crimped them up and added some heatshrink over the hook/thimble/crimp area...put on a tube of lumo...and thought go another step and tart up the hook with flasher thread and go one more step and add a coloured lumo squid to help with the movement and colour and action...and hopefully a far ken big kingie/bluenose/puka/bass...YEAHClap
