Wind Jigger
« on: Apr 06, 2017, 05:02 PM »
Ok, I must admit I made up this gizmo mostly for S & Gs! It gets a bit boring out there at times. ;D

It was 'inspired' by(if I can use that word) by the windlass tip-up jigger. This one works with a rod, but it just jigs the line/lure up and down. This makes the force req'd much less than moving the rod as well. I used a metal ruler as the upright flexible member. I'm sure you could use some metal strapping as well. It's a bit too flexible so I added the elastics. Since then I just put a paint stick on either side of the metal to stiffen it up. That eliminates the need for the elastics, which are a bit of a PITA with cold fingers.

The sound on the video clip seems to indicate a strong wind, whereas the wind was(in fact) quite light.

Enjoy, and maybe someone will find it useful.

That fact separates your devise far from anything Rube Goldberg came up with.

Well done sir.     :clap: ;)2
