Threadfin shad

This is one of the first swimbaits I made using the foil photo finish. She swam very well and had a nice slow sink to her. After the 6th cast she got hung on a tree and I broke the line...she will be missed.

I learned a lot from this build.

#1. Use a better clear coat.

#2. Don't test it where there are a lot of submerged trees.

#3. Use heavier line.

yeah, it was painful to lose her. Don't think it didn't cross my mind, but the water was too cold. I went back later when the water level was down and someone already got it...ugh.
