Wow! Looks great to me. I'm glad somebody is getting some use out it. My wife took one look at it after I bought it for her and closed the box and went back to her brushes. I knew I would never use it, (paint and me don't go well together) and it was taking up space in my desk drawer. I hope it gives you years of service. Thanks for sharing your work.

A couple more recent ones I made. They're lures three and four. I posted my first two earlier. Both about 3 inches long.

 

This one made because I see it coughed up by bass on the deck more often than not. A deeper diving bill.

This one because I wanted something very green...The next one will be very red.

Did a run with purple candy paint. Added flashabou to one. I like adding the flash now and then, but I hate working with it.

Someone spent some money on that mold as it is not the Do-It head.

Try the Junebug color from ProTec. It's another great jighead color that you don't see on production jigs.

Those Teflon weedguard pins work great when powder painting. Just make sure you remove them before curing in the oven. Paint comes off easily and the pins can be reused.

Finished today. Used my first UV resin. It worked well.

Really liking that new fluid bed @fishballer06!

I really need to try some of those dredge hooks. I have a few in some football jigs, but I rarely throw those.

Did my last batch of brown this afternoon. (unless I lose too many this year) Took it low and slow on the baking this time and there was no change in color. The garage floor showed that durability was achieved also.

Outstanding color scheme.  I would throw that all day long in my region.

My first segmented crankbait with a cloth hinge that sort of hides the segmentation. There's a video of the build... I also do my first fly tying. Well, actually a trailer treble hook fly. It came out sorta okay for my first fly. I can always exchange it if I make a better one.

Getting bored so made some Arkie jigs.  That summer craw pattern is new color I bought off eBay from jig junkie.  Started having success late summer with the summer craw colors with plastic so I decided to do some jigs.  
 

trying something different with green and white arkies for dirty or chocolate milk water.  Black colors seems only to work for me in clear water. blue I have not been able to go at all.  So I’m hoping the green flake and white will work in dirty water 

 

also the water melon jig and skirts.  The silver heads with black and silver will be made into chatter baits. 
 

still thinking I’m buying a swim jig, swim bait, and  chatter bait mold
