Another few lookers Mark, I've just been down the PO to collect the ones you sent me yesterday, they are queuing out the door I've not got the patience to wait in line. So the kid next door is going tomorrow for me at the cost of a fiver, hard-nosed little sod. :laughs:

Nice colour choices for your pair there Jason :cool: A bright one and dark one, but each with a touch of contrast. :thumbs:
John,

I do like a Black Perch pattern that Mark does, one of my favourite Perch lures is a deep diving crankbait in the same pattern. You can work it very slowly and the big bill helps you back away from snags etc. I would be interested however on what is Marks most requested pattern? Firetiger maybe? :grin:

At the same time though, it doesnt matter how many colours i add to the range (100+ now), someone always asks for something different :laughs:

Glad I asked mate, that is way above my head, the reason I asked for that pattern is in keeping with some of the older baits I've seen online, thanks. :thumbs:

Sorry, it can get a bit nerdy on here sometimes Jason. :red: :laughs:

As Mark says, it is the black version of the Heddon 'Shore Minnow' pattern (also sometimes called 'X-Ray').

There are loads of variants, but these are the classics:

Possibly I did not have any alcohol yesterday. Let's try again after its been tweaked.

Just playing about as I've not had many Perch on baits that run very shallow etc. I was casting to a small shoal of Chub and the little fella came out of nowhere and hit it. Great fun.
