I recently started investing in my own Muskie line. Thanks to Lure Parts Online, I've ordered several wire blanks, skirts, hooks, blades, lure bodies, beads, etc. to get me started. This particular lure has #9 blades with white beads to offset the hand tied feathers complimented by a rat like head that I also hand tied. This was tested in my pool in the backyard and has great action. Will be hitting the water this weekend to present it to the "Big Guy" in the pond.
