Default Hairball & Featherweights from New Zealand

Click the image to open in full size.

I received an email from a customer of mine in New Zealand and thought you guys might be interested in seeing a couple of "flies" tied in New Zealand that they'll be using for for targeting snapper...

Yes, the jig heads are naturally lead but the resin is a light cured resin called Bug-Bond.

Those are Jigging lures for use with a thread line. snapper live in pritty deep water and the line will usualy have another lead sinker on it a BIG one

The hooks are put in a mould and the lead is poured in I saw the moulds some years ago in a fishing store

Those flies would work for Kahawai if they diddnt have that big lump of lead on them very hard too land on the fly rod but not hard too catch

Rip that was the first thing i thought of when I saw them.

I'm sure they would be very effective over wrecks and such.

They look like they'd be fun to cast--- do they come with a helmet ?
