Finally got to throw the gill in some thawed waters. Its crazy. I burned it through and super slow retrieved and performed marvelously. I also got it to do the 180 turn but I think that will take some practice to get it down to an art. I will try to get a video up soon. Rock on! everyone for the help! You guys helped create a wicked bait!

How about an update?
I'm wanting to design a swimmer in the shape of a bluegill as well.

congrats on the swimming success. it does give one a sense of accomplishment to figure something out. i use the microfibers as well as paint brush bristles for the fins also. i arrange them in the shape i want on a piece of tape and then put another piece on top to lock it all together like a tape sandwich. then i apply epoxy to the tag end ( the part that goes into the lure body). leave the tape on until it is epoxied in place and then you can trim it to shape with scissors. don't epoxy the tape to the lure, you will not get it off.
