Decoy of the month May 2015

Recommended Posts

Thanks again to everyone who is following along with these threads.

The decoy of the month this time will be:

A Rainbow Trout 8 1/2 - 10" in length.

Please feel free to show as much or as little of your progress as you would like. Share your final products though. Even if they are done late. We all like looking at new decoys.

All shaped and sanded. Need to do the details around the gills and mouth. Then its off to fins.

I gave up on trying to build decoys if I added up all the money I put into trying to make them I could have bought some real nice ones laugh Cant wait to see the trout this month.

"Grumpy"....

"Natural Trout Shape"...

Exposed aluminum fins for a little flash factor. And a lot of metallic paints to get that special shine that trout seam to have to them.

Pushed to get them done early this month. I am starting to get everything packed up for my impending move. The shop will be closed for a month or two very soon. Not sure about the June Decoy. I have an idea, not sure if I can get it done with everything going on.

Thanks for looking.
