Here's my Rainbow Trout pattern:

1. Make lure body, pre-drill the holes and undercoat it.
2. Brush paint it yellow.
3. Sides are pink, brushed on.
4. Using a stencil made from a plastic coated playing card, spray paint the head green.
5. Spray the back green.
6. Use a toothpick to make the black dots and red gills.
7. Insert eyes.
8. Clear coat, twice.
9. Assemble the lure.
10 Go fishing!

It may not be a true to life RBT, but the fish seem to like it.
