Wow, that looks like something from a nuclear power plant cooling pond!

If you put some glow in the dark eyes on it, the bass will jump into your boat to escape from it. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Is that a single cavity mold? It looks like a whole lot of great detail work.

I was thinking if it was injected in the right shade of blue, and fished weightless when the dragon flies are mating it would be interesting.

I made it as a two cavity injection mold.

I would have made it without the eyeball flat, but I made this one for a buddy, and he wanted it that way. I never have good luck dipping to hold eyes on, but ...

That does look like it would work when the dragonflys are thick, if it floats.

The red should work for that, too.

The red is a mix of red shad (red with white pearl powder) and black that has been over cooked a couple too many times. I just didn't want to waste any good fresh plastic testing the mold. LOL. I'm down to a quart of fresh plastic and I am waiting for my next order to come in.

A transparent chartruese should be dynamite as a dragonfly imitation.

Maybe with a black flake.

I played around years ago with splitting some floating worms and adding them, X fashion, on the back of a full floating worm, but the whole thing was too hard to cast, so it got deep sixed.

Your bait looks like a perfect alternative, if you can get it to float with a hook in it.

I have thought some difficult to cast floating plastics might be presented more easily on a 7 to 9 weight fly rod.
