If you designed the lure bodies themselves, then let me commend you on your design.. They look great.. I would also like to say I really like the scale pattern as it looks very natural.. I would surely like to know where you got the scale pattern, could use that myself.. I restore and collect old wood antique lures made by the Paw Paw Bait Company.. Your scale pattern is nearly identical to theirs.. That scale pattern you use would help me greatly in my restoration projects..

hey jp all of my lures that i have in my gallery are completely 100 percent made by me. for your scale question i have adressed it in other pic comments before heh but since you asked so nicely here is how i do it..

in a nutshell you need a stencil that has a row of "halfmoons" cut out from it with will make out the scale pattern. to get that 3d effect i first spray a base color that is usually dark, black or green. then i start to lay the scales starting from the head and working my way to the back.. it takes sometime to do this but the end result will end up looking very natural.

I have some old paw paw lures myself and I enjoy trying to make replicas of them and catching fish with them. Wouldn't actualy use the originals since they are antiques of sorts.

Thank you very much for the details on the scaling.. I do not mind the extra effort to do the work.. I will experiment on a few of my custom cranks first.. I had the priviledge a few years ago to inspect an actual Paw Paw scale mold.. This was probably +50 years old mold device.. They casted a scale design from cast iron.. It was a 2 piece shell.. You put the lure blank inside the mold, close it up and spray thru it to produce a beautiful life-like scale design, very much like yours..Thanks again, the reply was greatly appreciated..
