Tying an Eyeless Japanese tungsten jig
« on: Jan 12, 2022, 10:07 AM »
I bought a bunch of these Japanese tungsten jigs some years ago. I've been trying to figure out the best way to tie one on. Tried a palomar knot that worked okay but wondered if anyone had a better idea?

I used to tie one on every Friday nite..... :roflmao:
Palomar is supposed to be one of the strongest, but one I learned years ago is the scaffold knot, think that would snug down and stay tight. Make sure whichever one ya use you get wet first before pulling tight.
Where did you find the jigs? Be interested to know how they work for ya.

Just Fridays??? LOL!

I can't remember where I got them. Thanks for the knot ideas! I'm open to anything easier than the palomar.

No prob. Palomar isn't so tough....there's some real doozies worse than that out there!  ;D

Still interested in how well those work for ya! Hungry Minnysoda fish aren't finicky like some others.. ;D
