    Cabin fever has set in early as I have been unable to get out fishing, made worse by being the best part of the bass fishing season.

    What do I need least? More Lures!

    So what do I do to relieve the stress? Make some more lures aaaAAAGH!

    The Prototypes for throwing at rocks.

    After seeing a strange looking lure on ebay the IMA bachi bachi, could this be an alternative to the 100mm patchinko
    bachi bachi = bee or bug
    So started with making the small brown one and change the head shape slightly on the green one,
    both 90mm and 16g each.
    Then thought I make the grown up versions 140mm and 28g each

    Not got a big Patchinko so my version 140mm and 29g, only 1g above my rod's rating

    Based on the mighty Gubfish, once my go to lure, but not had a bite in cornwall so thought I would slim it down in profile towards a Skimmer, top one 23g, bottom 24g

    Based on a Gibbs Needle both 27g, do not know what I was thinking with the top colour.

    Nice job good to see you using your imagination with the paint jobs, there might be a real killer in there.
