Old Designs

The three section is scratching 5" , thru-wired with some lead sheet glued into the front section together with the wire harness .

The forward pointing lip causes it to swim with a narrow roll and wobble at a high frequency , rather not in a snake-like manner !

But the segments still do hit one another , so some added sound is generated .

The small lure with a similar lip has the same swimming pattern , it kinda almost vibrates rather than wobble , ........something different to try:) !

The third lure is a version of the old "Rush Tango Minnow" , claimed to be the first floating deep diving lure in history . It works pretty nice and is gonna cast extremely well , I suppose , .....though being unweighted .

I've rigged the hooks straight to open screw eyes on this one , as otherwise with a connecting splitring the front hook possibly would have constantly fouled with the diving vane .

I like it! I have several Paw Paw minnow imitations which I carved last year and caught several bass on. They are similar to the third one in your picture. Except mine aint as pretty as yours cause I haven't gotten an air brush yet.

Thanks a lot !

In fact I like these lure designs of yesteryear quite a bit , as many of them are fairly easy to reproduce on a lathe and I am always curious about their swimming actions :yes: .

I do not own airbrush gear as well , I paint my lures with rattle cans and/or model making enamels .

I don't bother about premium grade paint jobs , I am rather much more interested in lure construction and design , ...sad , but true :blink: !

greetz , diemai :yay:
