The lip is red because it is still an experimental one. So Pete doesn't yet know if it makes any difference in fishing. But I'm sure he will post his findings after a while.

If my eyes do not cheat me, it seems that the eylets are not made out of wire, isn't it so? They seem to be made out of metal (brass?) sheet.

Thanks fellas - yes I made these for trout and maybe a bit of a run for bream next week at the coast.

Mark/Rofish I thought I would try a red lip for a change, I saw 'Rapala' using them on their 'Bleeding Minnows' which have been accounting for a few trout around here, also yellow/ green is catching a few too, so I might also try yellow lips on a few as well, and might call them 'Jaundiced Minnows' Ha! Ha! ------- the hook hangers are made from sheet brass (one piece 1mm thick), I had them punched out (3000 of them) to make assembly easier when I was selling lures about 25 years back, and still have the 'Die' for them, but don't have that many hangers left - Pete

thanks hazmail ! red lips I saw at other branded lures too (Salmo lures as egg); at chub fishing I noticed sometimes is making the difference; the pattern of the lures they used is different than your, so please keep us updated regading your pattern combination on the lure posten and the red lips
