  1. Hey all, Quick update Work has been stupid crazy and got a few personal things going on aswell. But will be getting back into the painting tonight and this weekend.... I am about to put a big order in for my YFW whiting topwater blanks aswell as several new different types of blanks getting ready for the opening up of the Ressies down south.... Keep an eye out
  2. Thanks for the kind words mate. Much appreciated.. i hope it slays you a few trout when you get back out there! They certainly the best ones I've painted to date and will be keeping with that pattern for all my trout lures from now on!
  3. Added the pattern onto some of them this morning. Stencils are the best thing ever to add another dimension to lures... added 3 different stencils to 3 different baits... Just needs sealant then clear coat Nd eyes and they are ready to smash PBs The middle one is my favourite out of the lot!
  4. So update on Softys Callop Lures. After i had applied the base coat of Yellow i added pearl orange to the sides of the lure.... I then added Pearl Pineapple to the belly to give the yellow a little more pop! Then i added an colour called Detail Sepia which is an dark brown. I added it to the top of the bait I have now used an transparent sealer over the top of the bait so i can add the stencil pattern tomorrow. The sealent is just a safe guard when using stencils that it doesn't scratch or damage the paint... So tomorrow the pattern is gonig to go onto the lure then from there it will just need eyes and completed. I also have done two different Purple colours that i will be inverting the 2 purples on each of the baits with a criss cross pattern. Hard to explain but will show once finished.... Both purple baits will be finished with black backs and black around the eyes. If you think there are other colour combinations you'd like to see be sure to let me know i still have another 15 of these blanks and i also have plenty of colours to choose from
  5. My latest project Softy asked for some callop lures so after some research and finding some to suit the depths and conditions for the variety of ways people will fish them. So after 2 weeks they finally arrived. So decided to prep and start placing the sealent undercoat and base coat tonight to let it dry overnight to add the next colours to it... Softy gave me a photo of one of his favourite lure patterns so i am going to replicate it but put my own twist on it... The lures are 100m from start of bib to tail end. (Only 5mm larger than the popular Daiwa rpm crank and weigh 15grams roughly with terminal added. Come with rattles too. Dives to 10ft-12ft If interested let me know as i have sooo many colours and patterns available for this lure.. Here is some progress shots.. Ill post pics as i progress with it. Cheers
  6. Forgot to mention painting lures all weekend got some new blanks to paint
  7. Working $$$$ Going away in a couple weeks so fingers crossed the weather plays ball...
  8. haha only reason why I am going to use mine for drone fishing now.... I spent over 2k on the Mavic pro when it first came out as i wanted to add another dimension to my photography... But work got in the way now i have 2k worth of drone sitting there only been used a dozen times if that so might as well make use of it. Bought the Gannet release dropper for it and all so it is setup all ready to go...
  9. All good here from Dinga Never any dramas from them at all! As for reels I just bought an Daiwa eliminator 8000 Spin reel for my drone fishing Setup. I'll roughly be able to get 700m of 50lb braid on it. I also purchased an Penn fathom 2 50lw which holds 600m of 50lb braid haven't used them yet but hoping to in the next couple weeks down the bottom of yorkes.. I'll be using an DJI Mavic Pro and m mate has AN 3DR solo drone. Mine can only carry 500g where his can carry 1kg no problems at all.... i'll let you know how I go if we end up going....
  10. Yeh mate sure is.... i won't buy anything until spring... unless i can get a good deal on them. But when spring time comes I'll be buying up a 100 or so yfw blanks. Maybe even some small poppers aswell... But certainly put the larger sizes on the list
  11. Got an notification saying they have landed in Australia and aus post have the shipping info... So fingers crossed it gets delivered sometime this week... Perfect weather to paint on the weekend as the weather looks crap to do anything else
  12. Cheers all... Might have some bigger projects in the near future i will be working on.... Just working on the options i have and wether or not they will be viable for me to make and sell.. But keep ya eyes peeled in the near future as it will take me awhile for all the parts to get here But for now here is a taste of what im working on at the moment
  13. 4 have already been sold before i have been put them up for sale... might have to make some more!
  14. Well these are at the 2nd last stage of the lure painting process. Just added my signature on the bottom of the lures and added the 2nd and final clear coat to them. The last stage is fitting terminal tackle and test swimming before sale... It's not as simple as paint lures and your ready to fish. It takes plenty of prep work and tedious bits amd pieces to produce lures like this... It has taken 2 weeks of prepping. Drying. Clear coating etc just to complete 10 lures... That's what makes it much sweeter and rewarding when you sell one and someone catches a fish on them... Keep an eye out as I'll put these up for sale on here 1st before i post elsewhere...
  15. A couple mates have been getting a few while drone fishing along the south south around Victor/ Port Elliot etc might be worth a look...... Been dropping baits a few hundred metres from shore
