Hi guys,ive been a member for over a year now but this is my first post.I really admire all your work .

Here are two Needles i made for our European Bass and two Pikies for Pike.

They are hand carved in Pine then covered with Alluminium tape before painting with rattle cans.The gold metalic is actually nail varnish then covered this with 5 coats of clear lacqour.

The Needles are 5 inch 1 ounce and sit just in the surface when static.

The Pikies are 4 and 5 inch 1 ounce and sink very slowly.

Tested them on my last Pike session on a Scottish loch and i had fish on both patterns.I am going to try Etex on my next ones as the Pike trashed the laqour coating with there teeth.

Dave,

 

Battle scars, battle scars! As people say on this board, once you fish them and bang them around a bit, they now have MoJo!

 

Nice job!
