8) Hi Guys

I have some more finished lures that I thought i'd post pictures of. Three banana shaped cranks(wicked tail action) more attempts at photo lures, and finally my wild coloured hybrid cranks. Hope you guys like them. 8)
Thanks Rob

Nice looking Rob, Great paint work. I'll bet the action is wild with that tail configuration. Pretty slick.

I got the idea from riverman and linkcolya (not sure on spelling). go to www.americanfishes.com and click on fish drawings then print the picture you like and size it to your lure using a photo program on regular or photo paper then attach it to your lure using head cement or glue stick then you have two choices if you're careful at placing your stencil down spray the top and bottom blending the colours or if not some guys epoxy it so you'll have no creases or visible lines then spray top and bottom. Add eyes, hardware and topcoat.


PS If you need any more answers you can also so a search on this board for photo lures
