Cleaning Jig Hook Eyes
Hook eyes should be cleaned out while the jig is still warm. Simply push a T-Pin through the hook eye, and grasp the excess paint between your fingertips. Then pull the T-Pin back out of the hook eye. This saves time out fishing!

Make your own T-Pin using an 8 inch length of 0.035" or 0.040" lure making wire and form into a "T" shape.

Vise grip pliers are excellent for holding your jigs and spoons while painting, they make cleaning hook eyes easy.

Repainting Old Lures
You can remove old paint from jigs and spoons by soaking them in lacquer thinner. Once the old paint has been completely removed allow lure to completely dry before heating. Repaint as above, or dust with brush, then two-tone through paper patterns onto cooled spoons, and reheat to melt the paint.

Keep Paint Loose
After dipping several jigs, powder paint will settle. Use a spoon to keep powder paint loose and fluffy or close jar and gently shake back and forth.

Always shake gently before using!
