Here is a picture of a Musky Flap Tail that I made......

Very nice bait.
I really like the tail.
What is it made from?
It looks like G10

That is a beautiful job you did on that bait!! If you don't mind me asking, I'm curious about two things:
1. How did you shape the slope on the head? Forstner bit or with a hand file?
2. What kind of action do you see with that tail, very cool!

Tail is alumnium, thick but light. I originaly had made the tail out of an old kitchen spoon(stainless) but it was too heavy and made the butt of the lure sink. The lure is weighted so it barely floats, and shoots down 2 to 4 feet depending on the speed of the retrieve. The large tail flaps quite nicely. The lip was cut on a band saw and touched up on the belt sander.
It was sold and lives in Iowa now.
