Will Wetline Posted March 2, 2019 Share Posted March 2, 2019 Here's a look at a display I put together for a local fishing and hunting show: This event has the feel of a flea market and my intention is to get a fair, non-negotiable price for work I spend considerable time on. I want the product to stand out from other venders "stuff dumped in tubs," so I decided to go high end with descriptive signs in holders and a photo board so I can point to a pic and explain a process. The photos also serve to quiet young bucks who smirk and say, "Do these things work?" I just point to a 4 lb. smallmouth and smile. By the way, the tablecloth is linen. Like many others, I like the looks of the casting that comes out of Do-it's Poison tail mold. I also tie bucktail and bear on an 1/8 oz. ball jig. Working one of these along the bottom slowly with a twitch and a pause for chilled out smallies puts you in a state of high alert. If you've got the patience for this oh-so-subtle presentation you may be well rewarded. New for the 2019 F & H show is this Crestliner2008-inspired blade bait mod. Start with Barlow's 5/8 oz. vibrating blade bait body, get out your Dremel and, wearing a full face shield, cut off the front hook hanger with an abrasive disc that will shatter if you flex it. Eagle Claw's 1/0 Siwash will show even a bruiser bass who's boss. You see above a couple of 1/4 oz. football heads, one tied with bucktail, the other with bear. It's not late breaking news to come up with this offering. What is, however, are their PVA trailers. I've bid a fond farewell to Uncle Josh and am now cutting Polyvinyl Alcohol into a shape that I think will say,"Food!" to fish. Gotta get back to the bench now to continue preparations for tomorrow's show. We'll discuss the potential of PVA later in the month. 11 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
