Wanted to make a few new lures, and was sick of making the lures over and over, so mucked around with a couple of new shapes.
Havnt done much painting during the wet, and found that most of my stuff needed xtrea thinning, hence the dodgy paint jobs. 1st one was inspired by barneys barra cannibals, I love this little lure, its beech, and swims really well, but I dont know how barney does them for market, way to much work. I stuffed it a fair bit rushing my sanding, but just wanted to test the shape, also inspired by blinkys archer fish, this my kinda cannibal archer, lol.

next are just muck around shapes, the one towed by the bib is not bad at all, and I might make a few more.
the shorty is a lure ive made quite a few of, swims great, good little lure.
the paint on its back is purple, gold, but looks more goldy brown to me,.

Thanks for the back guys.
Nicho, good colors, lol!
Like saying good hoses!
I really like aqua, s, for no other reason than I had success on aqua/leads hijackers when 1st started fishing for barra, I can copy that lure almost exactly, and still use one of Terrys hi jackers in that color as a go to lure!
was trying some different paints, the big one is a metalic grey/aqua looking color that I really like, it will be a fish taker for sure.
