MattExcellent creation Jon. How does it fish in bath tests? I see you've got that final paint finish using a net/stockings for scale patterns nicely perfected. What did you use for the silver finish underneath? I have have struggled with metalic silver paint finishes in terms of them running and their look. Tin foil or hologrphic wraping paper can work but tends not to be robust and difficult to get a smooth fit on the contours of the lure. Good luck with your further efforts, I'd be really interested in your progress with the tide minow type lure. In 8 years of carving lures I still havent seriously attempted divers as I have got it into my head they are too chalenging and will not prove effective at catching so I tend to stick to top water lures (or jerk baits at a push.) BTW I might be the BASS member Nigel was referring to!
