Hi

Good Morning !!

After a long gape I was able to complete 2 baits & tested both for their action & sinking, quite happy with the outcome. Sharing some of the pics for your views, comments & suggestions.










It was a long learning curve for me, whatever time i got after the working hours was spend on reading, watching resource on "how to make time lures" and trying different ways for enticing action of the lure. Had a hard time overcoming many issues one after the other, but never lost hope.

Cosmetically  they do not look prefect but feel that some more practice is required specially dabbing of lure eyes (like Australian lures). This was the first time, i was able to shoot createx colors smoothly. It was combination of createx thinner & corresponding PSI. All well fine including applying epoxy & signing on lures Smile!!

Thanks
Raghubir

Very well done Raghubir ClapClap 
Thy look really fish catcing Thumbs Up 
One thing I notice. Is the Green Lure has the towpoint horizontal. 
I usually tune my Lures that have vertical towpoint, by moving it from side to side. 
Could you tune that Lure, or did it just work the first time 
Thanks fore posting, and keep up the great work Smile

Hi !

Per

Sorry for the delay in reply, yes true the towing eye is horizontal rather than vertical. Great observation !!ClapClap

It works fine without any issues with straight side to side action. The lures have screw eyes made from steel wire. I was trying to align all the three eyes and doing so the towing eye need to be in horizontal.

Do you suggest to move the towing eye vertical, though the action and movement in the water is prefect or it will improve the action.

Thanks for your suggestions.

With Regards, Raghubir

Hi Raghubir
If your Lure is going well no need to change that
Reason i mentioned it, is if the Lure is tilting to one side. You can adjust it by bending the vertical towpoint just a little the same way till it goes straight

Be killer Redfin perch lures I think, good super strong looking hardware on them, I love the green colour scheme as well.

Hi Martin, Good Morning !!

Thanks for your views, i have 30-35 blanks available which were cut long before of same lure design.

Will be working on them focusing on improving the colors, specially the eyes on the  top cure.

Hope to share them in due course of time.

Hi Andrew, good morning to you as well, thanks for views. Mate its a learning curve , i am optimistic now for making quality lures.

Sorry for delay in my reply.

Regards, Raghubir
