swimbait- before/after

8 posts in this topic

finished this the other day, swims great! 7", 2.5 oz., slow sinking. the before picture shows how much bend is in the joints. i think this helps the natural swimming action. i also put a little ballast in the tail to keep it horizontal in the water.

coming soon--- Paul Jr.

Great paint job. I hope it swims as good as it looks cause' you got a winner there.

Beautiful job! Almost too pretty to get wet. BTW, are the body segments cast from foam?

I think this is a breathtaking job. Splendid colours. But I wonder what will happen if a fish would like to taste it from behind. Will it get to the hooks before he would be scared by the tail ? The more so as it is a very long one.

joints are a continuous loop of Kevlar string going from the front-through each segment to the tail and then back to the head.
