I finally finished painting my poppers and got the epoxy set. Then I finished the tying. I just need to finish the epoxy on the thread and I will call them done. Far from perfect, but man, what a blast. I learned so many "what not to do's", a couple of "wait..what?" and only one, "why Lord whyyyyy???" (Last one was the third thread break) I will start the next batch hopefully next week and see what I can do. This was also a lot of learning with the copic as well, but that's starting to become easier. I did buy a cheap air compressor and that will save a ton in the long run. They are all size 2. Anyway, here they are...2 bass and an attempted red ear sunfish.
I figured i'd do a group shot before they go on to their various destinations.
I only did two frogs this round because i'm waiting on materials to
arrive. I didn't have the right stuff to get the legs working the way I
wanted so I stopped at 2.
My Purple Derp...
I tried for a more brownish tone to this one.
I quickly realized i'm a much better painter than I am a tier. I really need to work on that.
Here was one I did for a friend at yakangler.com. Notice the yakangler logo at the back of the lure.
The next batch will be smaller in size, probably a #2. These were a bit clunky on an 8wt, but awesome on a 10. I'm pretty sure they would work on an ultralite spinning rig.
Great, another addiction. Oh well, at least i'm having fun.
Thanks for coming along,
