A version of the old "Pikie"

Sign in to follow this  

Turned out this one out of pinewood some two years ago without any sketch or exact plan about its final look , just wanted a lure like the old "Pikie".

It turned out 4 2/3" in length(without lip) , the body diameter is only little less than 4/5" .

Due to its relatively slim shape and the little oversized aluminium lip it wiggles and rolls a bit more than the original "Pikie"(got one of plastic) , it floats up slightly head-down and travels 5 to 6 feet deep .

Fished my arms sore with it yesterday(amongst other lures) , but couldn't stir up anything , since the sun burned down as hot , so that my arms and face is rather looking like "boiled lobster" color now .

And some three weeks ago it was still freezing at night......:(!
