Default Darter Hell is DONE!

Here they are, unweighetd maple I obtained from Ron at lordship lures on the forum. very generous act ron, he didnt even let me pay for shipping! Look how much wood he gave me ( This is with 5 peices missing!)


Heres teh 1st one, Maple. BIG! had 2 trebles, i took the front off for another to test, it swam OK. It was tough to get goin though,









Heres teh smaller stubby one, made 2 and both worked!







Im gonna turn more, thank you ron!

nice shape Nick, try going up one size on the front hook, that may solve your starting woes.. one thing to keep in mind about maple darters, they WILL act differently once you finish them ( epoxy) that is why I prefer birch ( it was also "Professor" jack Fretches wood of choice), you may have to adjust the swim plane a bit... have fun...
