As the forecast was not good today I thought I try and make some different colours to my recent successful lure



I will try these out over the net few weeks if the weather stays fine, I have also added some 3d eyes to see if that makes any difference. I would appreciate any help on colours from more experienced soft plastic lure as to different colour types and what seems to work

Lovely looking stuff Alan.

Tough question on colours really, everyone has their own pet theories. Here some more general observations:-

Orange seems to be a popular colour amongst some anglers, including commercials (as **** said yesterday)
Dark purple seems to fire the wrasse up
White is consistently good, especially irredescent pearl. Bloodhead even better based on pure numbers used successfully.
Transparent belly and sand coloured back works well on some shads.

Best of luck

Paul

I'm still expermenting, but the best colours in my home mades have been brown for wrasse and pearl for bass.

Been working on 2 tones now, clear glitter with another colour on the back, pink, orange, watermelon, brown etc etc. They look bloody good but no idea if they will work. poretty rough out there but gorgeous sunshine. Should try and find some shelter really...

My stuff took about 10 days i think it was trev, and that includes the standard quarantine in the UK while they decide if they want a channel islander to have their post (my new rod has been in quarantine from Japan for 6 days now...)

Mine took a week Trev. Make sure you put all you want on the order, I tried to order 2 more liquid colours and they wanted the same £10 p+p for two tiny bottles.

Did I give you some of the big grasdos type ones? If not I will post some to you. Be perfect with a belly weight on that mark where the big one came, cast out and twitch back slow near the bottom.
