Great looking bait!  That is an awesome scale finish!  Is each individual scale a sticker or did you shoot a black pattern over holographic tape?  Please share!  I've been trying to figure out how to get a scale pattern similar to this for some time.

Thanks. I would be happy to share this. This is a very easy pattern to make. It is spandex. I cut it to size, my wife sews it together like a sock so it stretches slightly over the bait. I put on 2 coats of epoxy add plastic filler where needed on the belly, sand it, add one more coat of epoxy then do the airbrushing. I get the spandex from The Spandex House in NYC. This pattern is on there website under hologram. it is called little mermaid. I hope this helps.

Wow!  That's crazy.  I never would have guessed any of that!  Very impressive and way to think outside of the box.

your lures, patterns and the way you do them are amazing, love them. As A-Mac said way to think outside the box. Wish I was a thinker like that.

Thanks guys! Like most of us on TU, I really enjoy making my own baits. I am selling some of them on ebay to help supplement the cost of my lure building materials and tools. If any of you are looking to do the same, open an ebay account and try it! This little "hobby" of mine is now paying for itself. I urge anyone to try it! It is just another part of lure building that can be very rewarding!
