Critter Baits

Post by John Milford » Wed May 15 2019 19:38

In other words, any lures that aren't supposed to be fish! Vintage or vintage styles - what have you got?

Picked up this funky little mouse the other day. It's starting to go slightly bald on top (aren't we all? :laughs: ). I don't know anything about it, other than its covered with soft rubbery material (and fur). Even the diving vane is soft. Burke perhaps?

Theyre the best option for the flocked mice. I did originally spray the ears too but the paint doesnt last long on them. Different ears on the non-flocked ones :wink: :thumbs:

you know the score mate, but a mouse with no ears just looks like a mole, and who buys mole lures? :laughs: :laughs: :laughs: :laughs:

All I can say is that I've seen more moles swimming than mice. One nil to the moles!

Really? :afraid: I`ve seen one mole in my life, which came to the surface of a molehill as i walked close by. Never heard of anyone seeing one swimming before Dave...

I didn't believe it at first. Thought it was a vater vole or a rat at first. But no. It was definitely a mole. Somewhere I have a slide of it.

Can you do birds with a 'Jitterbug' lip Mark? (Not necessarily a 'Baltimore Oriole' like this one :laughs: ).

Darren Lord saw one swim past his boat on Pitsford, he was long way from the shore and watched it half expecting to disappear in a big swirl, it didn't it slooooowly made it's way the bank until he saw it crawl out.
Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.

I wasn't a million miles from that place when I saw mine. Perhaps Northamptonshire moles are an amphibious subspecies? :grin:
