@Braided Line :

thanks for the compliments, always welcome.

@Herwin :

I was checking out this site for some John Snows and more inspiration and was thinking : "Could post some Dutch baits here as well." Far better advertisement than those stigmas about our little country..... no more tulips, wooden shoes or marihuana but just plain honest bait-tinkering from Holland.

Funny we bumped in eachother on an American forum. We practically meet once every two weeks and fish for pike :D , can't wait when the ice really starts to melt, haven't seen a fish in 5 weeks, don't even remember the inside of my boat.....

But i saw your posts too, great work on that Sick Zander with the purple belly !

@Gobo :

Those eyes I did are plain plastic puppet-eyes. These are 14 mm in diameter and you could order those anywhere, I guess. Just get a plier and cut the pin on the back end from the eyes away. Ik drill a hole of 15 mm in the bait and sink it approximately 2-4 mm in the bait. When that is done, take an 8 mm drill and drill a small hole in the middle to sink the remains of the pin. Get your Superglue and put the eyes in.

Tip : try to put the eyes on the exact same spot on the other side of the bait. If you go to all this trouble and the 2 eyes are crooked that would be a sheer waist of your time and bait.

another tip : is one of the eyes out of bounce, put some filler in it and try it again the other day.

Try it, it looks more difficult than it really is !

I have a fluffy toy shop here, where I´ll go to have a look for these eyes.

Great job again!
