Just finished painting and clearing my new rapala look alikes, hoping they work as good as the originals.[Image: KIMG0565.jpg]

Your lures look great, have you had a chance to give them a try yet?

Thanks, no, hoping to this coming week, and hopefully will have my new pole built and ready to go also.

Outstanding Lyle, great job.

Thanks Randy, still trying to figure out the airbrush, next ones should be a little better looking, plus looking at a different clear coat to see if it makes a difference.

I'm a fan of red gill slits!

Yea, lots of the newer rapalas are using them, hoping to give them a try this week, along with my new rod that I built.

Finally got it done, built my first rod and really looking forward to trying it out. Just have to do one more epoxy coat on the thread wraps tonight and it'll be ready to go.

Looks good, you are sure a multi talented guy. We have a rod building board on BFT but we lost all the pic, with the site switched over.

Thanks, Lol, not sure about multi-talented, but given the state of affairs, not wanting to be depending on being able to get what I want/need from sporting goods stores. Sportsman's Wharehouse in Twin and Pocatello look like they are going out of business and Cabela's is way expensive, been doing my own jigs for years now, just time to expand and build all I can, plus have found it to be cheaper and I enjoy doing it. Learned a lot of what not to do in building rods, so ordered some new things to help with rod building. Plus it's a great feeling catching fish on things that you have made.

That's too bad that both those Sportsman are closing, could be a lot of folks are afraid to go out to stores now, with the virus being such an issue. I know TubeDude(TD) and others, on the Utah board build their own lures. We have found a few of the lures TD makes work really well, for certain types of fishing.

I don't think they're closing, just can't get what they need to have in stock, just not much of a selection in either store, but the one in Twin has way less than the one in Pocatello.
