Wasted time with a frog gig

Postby mojoe » Tue Jan 03, 2017 10:12 pm

Scavenged some parts from broken rods, wasted a couple hours and made a nicer gig than is really justifiable.

No Myth

It is a little heavier than than the old school one I used to use, but they come off easier in the chute and holds just as good.

The frogs are just dying to be harvested by the business end of an original and custom gig such as the "mojo special". :kermit: Stick it to 'em.

Just finished a rattlesnake skin wrapped gig for a buddy. Turned out better than I thought it would.

I'm seriously impressed by this. It looks amazing, Mojoe. That's a work of art if you ask me.
