I was cleaning out my shed, and found an old few lures that i made ages ago, in fact they were my very first attempts that didnt swim. I then used them later to test sprat and adjust my air brush. Well, i made one for old times sake, changed the bib angle,shape and position, and now it swims like a beauty,

This one is my first serious attempt at towing from the bib. I dont trust bib towed lures as a result of losing fish, and winding in a bib. Ive made this one pretty strong, am confident the bib will mever pull!
action is a little slow , but has a nice sway and roll. Will change the angle slightly and make another. Origionally, it was going to be the same asmthe one ablove, but after botching the bib slot, cut the tail off and carved a bit out of the tail, and belly, ala barney minno style.

Looks good Dave. I like them both. If the bibs are pinned, they should not pull out Dave.
cheers steiny

Dave, I agree with Darren, drill a 1mm hole into the chin, through the bib and not out the top side Wink
slip in a length of .9-1mm s/s wire liberally covered in araldite and it should pull snags to the surface.

The way im doing it wont pull, same method as towing from the body, its a chunky lure, only a 1.5mm bib, too flexable for a lure this big, ive pinned em before, but like this method better, cheers for comments guys!
