Since the rain has kept me off the water, I thought I would make a few new baits. I made 10 total, but only have 6 done right now.
Let me know what you think. I am not the best with a camera.
All comments Welcome,

Your detail work is not the greatest in the world, as far as looking "professionally pretty", but the fish don't care about that, besides that's something you can easily improve if you want to with some simple stencils and a little practice. The foiling looks very good as does your design. They should work well and catch you some fish!

Dean, Thanks for the imput, I have since made up some stencils. My free hand work is not that good, I know. The stencils will make help alot.

Nathan, not yet, I haven't messed with mixing the colors yet. I will probably work on that later today or tomorrow.
Yea, they will put fish in the boat, my other ones have.

Those are some fine looking baits. I have got me a airbrush coming in the mail and i cant wait to get started with that.

do a search online for airbrush classes offered in your area or search your hometown community colleges, art schools, etc. learn the basics and you'll see much improvement and you'll master the all too popular "blending" technique.
