I tried a proper homemade this afternoon for a bit, not really the right ground for it so no takers but since I had it rigged up I thought I would take a photo.

I have caught bass on this, in strong tide.

I'm calling it a Large Roselet (grasdos, smelt etc etc).

The tail is very whippy and actually works a bit on it's own but with a twitch it darts all over the place. Very pleased with it and I feel this will be a bass catcher when used in the right places.

Hook is a 7/0 Owner cutting point from **** wrapped with solder wire for weight. maybe a bit too much weight on this particular one but I use solder as it's dead easy to adjust and cheap as.

just thought you might all be interested. And I know they're mine... My fingerprints from the modelling clay have transferred onto the mould and hence onto the lures :-o:-D.

Don't lose it or the litter police will be after you Andy!

Excellent lures, hope to get mine underway soon.

7/0? Hoping to snare a Tope are you?!

A 2lb schoolie will happily take a 7/0 no problem. You have to match the hook size to the lure or youwill miss lots of takes.

I missed a fish this afternoon on one, had it on for a while and then it went slack when the fish was in some heavy white water, didn't see it but can't imagine it was anything but a bass taking something like that.
