This is one of my first attempts at making my own lures... Its something of a copy of an Original Rapala, but painted in my attempt at a simple smallmouth pattern. Its hand painted, cross my fingers for an airbrush for Christmas, and hand carved (or sanded) out of balsa. Hopefully this thing will tempt some of the pike and smallmouth in my backyard. Any comments or feedback are more then welcome, I'm completely new to this and would love any advice or anything really! Maybe some advice on how to take a good looking picture.
