SINKER MOLD INFORMATION
Welcome to Real Pro’s SportFishing’s Special Sinker and Lure Mold portion
of our on-line catalogue. With the many questions regarding casting lead jigs
and other lures we thought it appropriate to create this dedicated section in
our on-line catalogue. This section is dedicated exclusively to molds, so it will be of
special interest to the lure maker who enjoys casting their own lures. All
of our molds may be used with lead, tin, bismuth or bismuth/tin alloys. There
are a few molds we recommend that you cast with pure soft lead.

As you can see there are several different collar designs. Below
is a brief description of each collar design.
Preferred by many who
tie flies and other experienced lure makers. One of the more difficult collars
to wrap, it can make the most effective jig using a minimum of material. It is
tied by first wrapping the desired hook with thread, building as thick of a
threaded base as desired. Material is then added and wrapped. With practice,
tying to the hook is fast and gives more action to the material.
COLLAR WITH BALL Easy to tie, especially for beginners. The ball on the end
prevents a loose wrap from slipping off the collar, provides a natural stop for
the material being tied. The ball will also hold plastic grubs.
COLLAR WITH BARB Made to secure plastic bodies on the jig. The barb is
usually positioned on the top side of the collar. Barbs positioned on the collar
opposite the hook are called reverse barbs.
HOLDER COLLAR An all purpose collar made to hold plastic bodies and rubber
skirts. It is also easy to tie material on the holder collar.
FLAIR COLLAR A thick collar made to flair bucktail, crimped nylon or other
wrapped and tied material.
