  1. ov10fac, the hook used in the shad came with one of those wapsi kits, believe it is the size 2 saltwater body
  2. I have had some success using a pin vise to hand drill a hole but am usually satisfied with tying right on the hook shank.
  3. great job! classic; know the fish will love em!!
  4. I use a ruler (cork back is best, doesn't slip) and exacto knife on a teflon cutting board. also have a beaver-tail shape cutter and stealth bomber cutter
  5. As a very general rule if I want to imitate a small minnow i use something that will undulate for the tail usually marabou or rabbit, if i want it more buggy I will use calf tail or hackle also I use rubber legs on the buggy one. of course there are no rules. so mix it up, Add some flashabou or some crystal flash the bream aren't that picky seems to me they have more issues with the color and size I choose rather than than the materials
  6. Those look great you must have had some airbrush experience in the past!!! I like the createx paints too, but may have to try the "Golden" when I restock.
