That is a stunner, too bad we are lacking the full image. Easy to see this bugger is a micro swimbait. Micros are a prime niche, not just for small fish. Those big b@stards hit small lures in my experience.

can't wait to get back out to the dam to chase a cod. couple mates are going in a fortnight or so, want me to go but will still be outside the allowed travelling distance . i'll give one a go dave, let me know how much they are. does anyone know if the distances your allowed to travel are in a radius from where you live or kms travelled. to the dam as the crow flies from my place is 250kms, but 320kms by road. and no, there isn't a crow big enough to carry me on his back. . . .mick

G'day Warren,  I started with a few timber ones as prototypes, using weights to get the action right and then using hard plastic I started moulding them.

I will still make them in timber but the price will be higher of course.

Cheers 
Dave

Dave- That is ruddy gorgeous! Leaning toward that cod pattern awful hard though. that trout pattern is a looker don't get me wrong, but that cod has panache.

Ah, guess that's average size, picture made it look smaller. Thanks for clearing that up. Swimbaits are high on my lure making bucketlist, might pester you for some tips down the line Dave if that's alright.
