@ FLASH

.................interesting , ......if you could ever find it back , would you post a picture , mate droolsmilie ?

By now I've also made another smaller one , but with a straight body turned on a lathe , .....a lot easier than carving this way , but also provides just a tight wiggle , .....gonna post it in a few weeks after painting .

Cheers , Dieter howdy

G'day , people ,

.............just got done with another bunch of homemadies , ........sadly some don't swim 100% perfect , but I'm in good hope to still be able to improve their performance once I'd have the chance to tune them in the outdoors .

@ Tyenna Dave

..............Thanks , Dave bowsmilie , ......hahaha , you're not the only one falling in love with that body shape , ....an American mate on YouTube asked me for the sizing , .......it's L x W x H = 67mm x 13mm x 27mm , measured at thickest portion of body and without the attachement eyes , .......just glued in some 1.0mm lead sheet into the belly slot together with the internal wire form ......fore and aft the belly hook hanger , the rear third of body length and the part ahead of the bib remains unweighted .

Due to the "V"-shaped cross section no more ballast required to cause the lure to float up perfectly upright .

good luck making your own versions thumbsupsmilie , ........cheers , Dieter howdy

You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.

Thanks , mate bowsmilie , ....already busy painting the next batch , ....some more of this style in "Nemo" pattern amongst them , but equipped with Lexan bibs this time , ....I'm in good expectation , that these would perform a little better compared to these aluminium-bibbed ones ?

greetz , Dieter howdy

More awesome lures there Dieter and as usual very interesting designs and techniques in colouring/painting them.

I too like the 'mottled' paint jobs too - I think it always reminds me of the early Rush Tango mottled finishes they used to put on their lures all those years ago (nearing 100 years this decade!!). But as usual you put your own slant on things.

The lathe turned lures look great and those props you make are a very detailed design and can see why they take so long to make.

The 'grubs' are coming out nice - that whitish one with the saddle bib looks like an Australia wattle grub or Bardi grub. howdy

Love your posts bowsmilie
