Default Finished Darters, old school look

every one swims, Took them to M in that 4 foot heave when they were naked with just theyre hardware and hooks, and threw them. I was able to get working darters from
Douglas Fir
AYC
Pine
and Unweighted maple
all of those, AYC pine and DF had weights logged in theyre, pine was the trickiest as It was a very bouyant wood, and hard to keep in shape, So it needed a good amount of lead. I used a thin coat of finish, so it woulnt alter the action, like etex can.
Shooting for that old style look, Enjoy guys!



















Missing about 8 that are drying, Enjoy!
Nick
