  2. First time turning a Pikie. I think it came out pretty good. 6.5"
  3. Thank you everyone. My cut was pretty centered and my hole is below center I attached a picture to show it. I'll post my next few.
  4. Hello all, I have been working with wood my entire life and have been a fresh water fly guy for years. I salt water fished when I lived in south jersey years ago and when i was on ibsp with bait, plugs and flies. I've recently relocated to south Jersey with the family. So since i started more salt water fishing and i have a lathe I figured why not. Here is my first attempt at turning a Danny. Please critique the shape. The through drilling was the easy part ( can see though the plug). I have a few lips so I picked a danny 2. I think a 1 might be better. It's a 6" plug. I also think I'll do 1 hook instead of my first though of 2. Let me know how i did.
  5. They look great. Add eyes to them. Predators key in on them. I believe it helps. Jeremy

  11. Hello all, I've been turning on the lathe for about 3 weeks now. Tonight i decided to change pace and turn a plug. I chose a danny style. I don't think it came out to bad for my first try. It's out of a pine 2x2. Please give all the feedback you can. I've always been a fly tyer. Now I'm into plugs. Jeremy
