can't really tell so a few questions?

is that image over foil or another background?

whats that image printed on, tissue or ...?

and is that really assembled? if it's assembled that's a very nice tight fit, great job. i've been thinking of getting into those swimbaits but time is so slim now it's hard to experiment anymore. frown

it is not foiled that takes to much work and doesn't look that much better now i just use paper and glue or you can use the label paper that has a sticky back it is assembled but it is curved, hard to explain but i have it sitting to the joints make it curved instead of straight it is not as tight fit as the pic looks witch is good you don't want it to be to tight any other ?'s pm me- i might not respond right away because i dont check this forum as much because there are a couple other ones i like better than this one. and i think you are on TU my name on there is ebby also

thanks ebby. FM only started this forum early this year. so it's still a work in progress. biggest thing here i've seen is no one really asks questions about lure building so much yet. a few but not alot. it's hard to just come up with something to say without knowing there's an interest you know? anyway, PM's are disabled here so that's not an option. so if you get here fast that's cool. if not i'll be here whenever, lol.

i've been working on a foil sided top water but time is zero right now. i textured it so it looks like scales kind of. more like a hammered blade with squared/rectangle dips not round. mabe i'll post a thread with stages from start to finish, if i ever get time.

I am not so much into the lure building(a guy only has so much time for hobbies) but some of the work on the lures I have been seeing definitely some fine craftsmanship. Nice to see that kind of work.

Keep posting and I may have to find some time for another hobby, well I could probably squeeze it in if I quit fishing, naaww ain't gonna do that wink

    • which models of striker bibs/ coat?
    • That little doe is a sweetheart. Reminds me why I gave up hunting. But I did it for more than six decades from MN to MT to AK and Canada. Before somebody jumps in with a snide  comment, I don't care if YOU do it but it is just not for me any more. Carry on. Nice pix....couple nice looking bucks.
    • I fish for monster bass too. But yeah, when one is the master of walleyes one tends to be an elitist... 
    • I agree; stay away from the extended warranty.  If my dealership (Village Chevrolet) won't honor the original warranty, what makes you think they will honor an extended warranty?  This problem was discovered well before my warranty ran out and they still treated me like an ugly sister...

    • You two must be elitist walleye guys. 
    • I can't say I'm much in agreement with Gary Johnson on this issue and I can admit it. I will say however that it makes more sense than the deal Pence struck with Carrier.   1. The carrier deal handed away state money while still being a net LOSS of jobs in that state. Johnson's program enticed new business into his state and resulted in a net GAIN of jobs and probably tourism dollars as well.  2. I think these types of deals should be handled as locally as possible. It's called representative government. Maybe it makes sense in the New Mexico deal that it be handled at the state level since it probably effects the state as a whole at least to some degree but I don't know. The Indiana deal should have been handled locally, especially if any of the tax cuts promised were property taxes. Those benefit communities at a more local level and the jobs saved benefit communities at a more local level. The state government possibly should not be handling these things but the Federal Government most assuredly should not be involved in these deals.  3. I'm pretty sure that the threat of interference with federal contracts had much more to do with the Carrier deal anyway so why did they give Carrier any tax breaks? I thought Trump was a tough guy and a strong armer? In the New Mexico deal, tax cuts are about the only leverage someone would have to bring that extra revenue and jobs into the state.   I'll say it again, I'm really not in favor of the government picking winners and losers. I do think the Pence deal is something that happens every day but the only difference is it happens at a local level and you don't have a blow hard President-elect taking credit for it normally. Time will tell whether it was a good deal or if the rest of the manufacturing community will hold the Government for ransom now like every professional sports franchise does these days.    Gary Johnson is in favor of replacing the current Tax code with a 'Fair Tax" system.
