Team C.O.D would like to do a team challenge, junk jig build. Any other teams up to the challenge? Simple rules on the honor system, each team member builds up to 3 jigs out of unconventional items , found around the house or garage. The only "fishing" gear that can be used are hooks, rings, or swivels. You can't use your buddy commercial machine shop but if you have your own in the garage you got an advantage. We will need some impartial judges to pick through the pictures and decide who's is : best looking, most fish able looking, weirdest, most creative. Just for fun and bragging rights. Not on a team? Ask if you can join one or start one. 
Rules:
1. no conventional tackle--with the exception of a hook, split ring, swivel,line, and lead for weight only (provided the lead isn't molded in a traditional mold like jig heads, body's or drop weights ) you will have to melt and mold it or use wire style to wrap or pound it flat with a hammer.  :violent1:
2. No traditional flies , you may use thread or line to tie things to your jig as long as there not typical fly tying things like feathers and the such.
3. You have until the the end of February to complete the jig
4. Welding is ok as long as you don't grind a welded piece em metal into a jig, get creative.
5. No copying jigs that have already been posted we want creativity and variety here as well as fun.

Sounds like fun.

Unconventional is a relative term.  I have used many unconventional materials to catch fish.  Some of my jigs and lures look like MacGiver built them.

I think the real test would be to see if they catch any fish.

I'm in.

I make badass spoons out of spoons that catch steelhead. Not quite a jig but effective. I've also used pieces of copper pipe and coins to do the same. I think there are a lot of possibilities.

See about jumping on team INSAYN or start your own team up. Not like we're professionals here so it's all for fun as far as I'm concerned.

  Like most of us--- I have plenty of "junk" in my shop.
  Never really thought too much about turning some of it into fishing jigs .
  Will look around and see what I can come up with..........
 
  Agree with Cosmo--- the proof will be in the catching. Maybe at ORC ???
Life is short---live it tall.

Be kinder than necessary--- everyone is fighting some kind of battle.

Sailors may be struck down at any time, in calm or in storm, but the sea does not do it for hate or spite.
She has no wrath to vent. Nor does she have a hand in kindness to extend.
She is merely there, immense, powerful, and indifferent

Sounds like a good side category for Angler of the Year.  Jig must be photographed with fish.

This sounds fun, time to dig in the garage and also the wife's cosmetic bag for some shiny stuff. I remember when I was a kid, I saw some guy using french fries for carp...and it worked better than worms....

This sounds like fun. I'll volunteer to be a judge. I make my own lures frequently and have lots of odd things like silicone for molds and resins for casting stuff in the house so I'm a little over-qualified for participant status ;)
Relax. You'll live longer.

bb2fish, sounds like a ladies team is in order
no_oil_needed thank you for stepping up to judge now we just need maybe two more judges? I'm thinking easiest way would be start a gallery for the pictures or we would need to swap emails and team captains could email pictures.

This could be a fun challenge. Would we be able to add lead to our junk to weigh it down?

I don't see adding lead to be a problem as long as it's not molded into conventional fishing shapes like jigs or droppers.

Sweet, but you seem to be missing the most important category, ability to catch fish.  Have you considered requiring all pictures to show  the jigs in fishes mouths?

That will be the next challenge when PC and Depoe Bay calm down enough to fish. Got to keep the challenges going.

One of the ideas Mojo and I are tossing around for on the water challenge day, is that the only jigs taken on the water that day are the Junk Jigs. 
This way there is limited options of catching a fish without using a Junk Jig.   That part of the game will be dialed in before we hit the water.

Isn't this the least important category?
A lure's primary goal is to catch the fisherman, catching fish is just an added bonus that maybe 15% of the stuff in my box can claim as an actual ability.
Ha ha!

Imagine if you were in a store and saw two packages of the same price. One is shiny and rattles, the other is an old Eagle Claw hook and an earthworm; I know which one has a better chance of catching fish, but I'd still walk home with something shiny.
My wife thinks fishing is merely guys wandering around like idiots swinging sticks in the air. Many of my trips prove how smart she really is.
