I like to make the eyes look like the bait either has a screw loose, or is half asleep and not paying attention :laughs: :laughs: :laughs: :laughs: :giggle:
I fished with a bloke years ago who used to put snake launce on his trebles so it was curled up to "make it look asleep"! He definitely had a screw loose !
Hehe that is a bit deranged :laughs: :laughs: :laughs:

Go on then, did this one today while doing orders.....head shape closer to the old original giant vamps, and fitted glass eyes on this one too....

2 more from today....a "Vamp" and a "Flaptail", both 6" versions. After a lot of fiddling to get the right colour hues for this pattern, i`ve finally got it pretty close to the original Heddon pike colour scheme.

A Creek Chub Dinger style bait, just finished. Had to work out the rear hook hanger and how to stack the hair for the tails on these. Got there in the end though :thumbs:

There`s loads of scope for tail colours :thumbs: Not sure what they used back then, but to my eyes it looks like some sort of soft hair they`d use for brushes etc....in one description I saw horsehair mentioned, but having tried it on dingbats, I doubt thats what was used - horsehair is very stiff and killed the action of the lures. Bucktail is similarly stiff. I either use artificial bucktail which is softer, or cheap hair extensions which are similarly soft on mine.

I usually finish Creek Chub replica baits off with those eyelets John, keeps them close to the original style :thumbs: I`d have liked to have through wired these like the old originals but getting the right wire and hook saddles is a pain....
