I just want to start out by saying thank you. I have been pouring over both this site and the soft plastics forum and all I can say is WOW :!:
The information I gained here is more than I could ever get by buying a book. I have taken a large leap in the learning curve. Thanks to you I?m am able to learn from all your experiments, trials and mistakes.
I have just finished my first lure and would like you to tell me what you think. The lure is balsa with a foil and tissue paper. I want to thank Husky for all his info on this one. Also thanks goes out to Tally for his tutorial on plastic dip. I would like to say that I also had problems with not using virgin lacquer thinner and didn?t understand what was wrong until I read some later posts. You might think about making a correction to the tutorial for the sake of new members. Thanks for all the other information that made making my first lure possible.
I know the first thing you?re going to say is that the mid hook is located in the wrong place. It is a little farther back than it should be. Brain warp I guess. Anyway it swims with a wide wobble and tracks straight. I hope this one is going to be a killer on the small mouth.
Thanks again everyone this is a fantastic site.
