@ SNAFU

..............I was just wondering , as without hooks most lures might not swim too well -duh lol !

Yep ive noticed this too . Sometimes they swim fine until the hooks go on . I make a habit of test swimimng on all stages of the build up . Before glue ,After glue ,After primer ,after paint ,after fit out of bibs .and after clear . Lot of stuffing around but i still like seeing my creations work and try and figure out if they dont . Great looking lures buy the way SAFU.They look far beter then my first attempt. clapclap

clapclap clapclap Nice job Snafu!

They look great! I especially like the little ones with the black stripes on, look like Jack nibbles to me!
Don't forget to take your phone next time, can't wait to see your catch on your first batch of lures. You should be proud mate. thumbsupsmilie

Keep up the good work.

Cheers
