Nice work, don't see anything wrong with restoring old damaged lures. Been doing a few myself lately, will photo and post on my return to Oz.

I had mixed feelings when a mate brought along an original Moller for me to paint. He had already painted it 25 yrs ago and wanted the original colour scheme! Was like an archaeoligical dig to uncover the old paint. He was happy with the result and is going to use till he gets a Barra before retiring it. Smile

Knocked up a couple of minnows to practice on. Had to use felt pens as I couldn't hack it with an old paint brush! LOL

Hi Alistair....here is the post I have been looking for. I couldn't remember where it was located.

Can you please move it to the HYBRID section?

Thanks again for your trouble!

These look schmick Ian, make sure you whack up a pic of them with a fish hanging off them when you take 'em out for a swim.
