Hi Glenn,

I am a new member at this website. I am also an avid squidder here in Washington State (USA) and I also make my own jigs for squid fishing. How can I post some of the photos that I have on this site? :beer

SA - the land of the bigger fish. The fish on the east, measure the least, but if you head west, you'll be bringing in the best!!

Hi Calamariman, haven't been on here for a few days, have been pretty busy with work.

I see you are local to me, as I go to Redondo as well. Although have not been there yet this summer, as I have been spending most of my time at Seacrest Pier in Seattle.

I see you are making your own hooks too...... I think I can hook you up with some nicer hooks for you. Check these out!!!

Jon

Hi Jon,
you have a pretty interesting looking hook and it comes in 2 sizes, Im just wondering if those are modified or you make them yourself from scratch. I do make mine from stainles steel wire spool.

These hooks are custom manufactured hooks, not made by hand. So these are commercial quality. I sell items world wide, and it needs to be of the highest quality.

I was having these custom manufactured, as there is quite a demand for them in Washington State for people that have been hand making them from pins or wire.

I actually have 5 sizes.

Three standard sizes Small, Medium, and Large.

Two Wide Spyder Hook designs Wide Spyder, and Ultra-Wide Spyder. The Spyder hooks are currently in production, and won't be available until 1st week of October. I have several local manufacturers of handmade jigs that are waiting for me to get them in.

Hi Jon,
I'm wondering how much were you selling for the wide spider and the regular spider, I might be interested in aquiring some for my own use.
