Those are RMs and I’m a big fan of those in particular

Bay minnows? If so, have a few myself. I didn’t recognize the big eye. I picked up a bunch of Ryan’s stuff this season, hoping to grab a few more things of his that I won’t mind seeing water this spring/fall. Some will stay packaged for now.

Giant swimmers, 3oz. There might be a “big eye” in the name too I wish my memory was better about the names:shrug:

That’s where I found them. Better in person, a buddy of mine has a few and said they swim great too. 

I remember several years ago he was selling his stuff on eBay too and I recognized the design style.

He makes some great stuff.

I want a pencil on another fishing website made by him with an airbrush picture on it real cool lure.

I have my reservations about Poombah after I took a new spook out for a spin and it looked like this:

Looks like water got in around the grommet where it's where it meets the wood.

I couldn't easily fixed I don't know how savvy you are using epoxy but you give  the whole lure scuffing with a scotch brite pad and give it an overall full coat of epoxy making sure though take a straw,cut it and slip it over the barrel so it doesn't jam it up, give it a good epoxy coating then hang it up make sure you get coated well around that hole and you'll be good to go.

Get very simple fix,10 mins.

Sounds like an interesting piece, I’ve only come across swimming type lures by him. I’ll have to keep my eyes open.

Tried some big eye, not sure which I like better. The orange/green tho is my new favorite pattern to paint.

Added the three bottom ones today, had to grab a couple more of the little guys because the blue one swims so good.

Whose are these? My first guess was Smith’s. That top slim looks amazing.

That top slim was the first metal lip I caught on, I unfortunately have no idea who the builder is though.

I've seen all those designs before I just can't remember who the hell it was and yeah I do want to say it's Ryan but, I can't say for positive.

I will say I definitely have seen those designs before.
