Fishair = Awesome Fin Material

5 posts in this topic

I've noticed people using paintbrush bristles and the like for fins on swimbaits. I used some fishair, a synthetic for flytying, and it seems to have some AWESOME action in the water. What other materials have you guys used to make fins?

I use lexan for fins, I cut and shape it using the sanding drum. I then dye some 5 min epoxy adhesive with my chosen color of soft plastic dye, I then mix in the hardener. This is applied to the fin. Once the epoxy begins to set use a small tooth brush or toothpick to add bone texture to your fin. I then epoxy these in place on my swimbaits just be fore I apply the final coat of finishing epoxy, this way the fins get a coat too.
