Great show on tap this weekend… and new SJ Gear

I have few videos that I did over the years that I haven’t showed you. Why? Mostly out of fear of embarrassment…because they suck. But then today I was looking over the video about how I make the head for a rigged eel hook and I realized that….the video still sucks. I talk a mile a minute…however I also realized some of you might find this information useful. And if I can help even one guy, then my job is done.

Note a short sleeve polo shirt (Thanks Harv) and date it was uploaded YouTube, September 6th of last year. But it’s been locked up for for 6 months for  before mentioned reasons. Progression of a video googan

Also a note with this video. If it sounds like I came up with this concept, I did not. Our Editor Roger Martin clued me into this. I just use different epoxy but he gets the props from me for the idea. Where did he get an idea, you will have to ask him. Maybe one day he will write a blog post of a article in SJ on all the things him and Al Bentsen screwed around ,trying to make it better over the years.


Oh, yes, for those off you that are attending Asbury Park Fishing Club show this weekend, you will have a first shot on these limited edition t-shirts we made this week, just for the show. Only a dozen or so in large,xl and 2xl were made so stop by the SJ table in Asbury this Sunday and pick one and support your favorite magazine. While supply lasts.

    Z great tip. you can see your editing improvement, but over all a good video with good info’. But I gotta ask…. Zip ties? Didn’t you do a video against them? or am I thinking about someone else?
    either way this is still a good how to vid’.

    Awesome video, I may be the “one guy” you aimed to help, but guarantee others found this useful. You’re destined for sainthood in the big suds box in the sky. Thanks for all that you and your team do…

    Great video Z! That’s a great tip. It’s easier than soldering some copper wire to the hook. Thanks for sharing.
