    If you willing to make your own assist hooks or assist rigs for hight or slow jigging
    I buy my own stuff and i make them myself with a little bit of time.
    I’m just showing how the jigs comes from stock and what I did to make it better.
    Let me know what you guys think

    looks great! i like to cut the heatshrink wrap a little longer to fully cover the kevlar line into the eye of the hook through the knot

    For what it's worth...I put together an instructional video on how to tie your own American style SPJ assist hooks in the Benny Ortiz fashion. You can search 'Falconer Custom Rods' on YouTube and find my channel. Again, all credit to Benny on the method but some find the live video demonstration helpful.

    Also have a video up on the traditional style using spade eye hooks. Hope this helps. Good luck!

    Hopefully soon moving out of the city to the country side where the days are longer and slower, so I think I will have the time to make my own assist rigs/hooks. Your final product looks really nice. Good idea!
