Beautiful! How do they run in the water...Tight and fast wobble? Track true?
Nice work, nice indeed.

I don't know how it's gonna run. I haven't tried it yet. That's the first fat bodied i've made. I usually make flat sided, and they run true, but we'll see.

Real nice work. You do not have to look for craftsmanship, it just jumps out and grabs you.

Thanks fellas, I'm thinking of tryin to make a go at peddlin these things, but don't want it to be a thing where i HAVE to do it, just make one when i get time. Also, thinking about doin custom work for folks with existing baits that need face lifts. So, keep me in mind. Again, thanks for the comments.

Nice! I like that one.

I suppose it's my turn now, I'll get these orders caught up and do another species

From a guy who struggles to do paint by numbers with my kids - that is stunning work!
