here's a group photo of some lures ( the herring is in the center). it's hard to see in the pic but there is a faint yellow stripe along the lateral line and barely some rose color under the belly.

I read your question as wanting brokeback photos, and got a little concerned. Then I put on my glasses.
Those photos from Sinbad are great. I'd love to screw up enough courage to try foil/photo finishes.
Is it just me, or does a Blueback Herring look like a big shad?

Being from Montana, I thought you were a cowboy?
I really think how people conduct their private lives is their own business, as long as it doesn't harm anyone else.
I think most of us have enough trouble just trying to keep our lives together, without worrying about everyone else.
But I finally saw that movie on cable a couple of months ago, and I found it strange. Not something I'd watch twice, but it was challenging to watch. Made me think about how I think about other people and their lifestyles, and the assumptions I make.
Like the saying goes, "You never know a man until you walk a mile in his shoes". I don't think I'd want to walk in those shoes, but that movie made me look at it from a different perspective, for sure.
And I'm not going to make a batch of brokeback lures!

I've played around with the picture in post 5. I hope you can recognize it. If you like it or not, that's another matter:

I too have also been playing with pic in post #5 might be a good one for foiling.
