GOLDDIGGER ROUND BEND W/ WIRE KEEPER
The Open Water version of the Glass Fry was a personal challenge I've been working on for several years. I received a ton of requests for a larger open water version for Walleye, most often. I recreated the 2nd Ice Version of the Glass Fry Base Jig to accommodate the strong and sharp Mustad Ultra Point hooks and a wire keeper. The larger style Glass Fry had to be created in a different way. All of the Small Ice versions are done individually by myself in a freehand method. The amount of material used for the New Open Water Glass Effect is a much larger volume. To control it a Mold was created for each New size. This is the result you see now.
In order to create the Open Water versions of the Glass Fry I had to focus on how I would be able to make them. I tried to keep the Function portion of the design high on the list. To make everything work I had to open up tolerances for the Glass to work in the molds I had created. In doing this the Jigs became much bulkier than I had initially wanted. Again, if it was a Tungsten Base jig I could make them more compact. So, keep this in mind when debating your purchases. I've seen larger profile baits work better than smaller one's some days but more than not a smaller offering takes more fish. As always, I want to be transparent about everything I make. If you are just collecting them...... It's a very cool looking bait! Sure to be the Crown Jewel of many collections.
