Been testing some new products after some requests from some of you sniffers. *Such as a glow double flutter.
So I came up with a custom painted glow rainbow. *This lure has 4 coats of extended glow paint. *Top coat is a green, a red lateral line, and coat of red uv over the red lateral line. *Then a coating of crystalina sparkles.
This lure was tested at UVR and produce 2 nice macks.

Been asked several times over the *years to produce a cop car, black/nickle or a shad flutter spoon. *Here is a pic of some that I came up with. *These are 2 3/8" long. *These will also be available in 2 5/8"

The top one is Black on top, pearl belly with blue lateral, nickle back. *crystalina finish and a black eye.
The second lure is a nickel hammered blade black on top covered with crystalina and a black eye.
The bottom lure is black on top w/stripes, glowcenter, chartruese belly, black eye and crystalina finish.

What do you think?

Also on our website we have add two new sizes of dodgers. *6 3/4" and an 8" both available in nicle blue prism or crush glow. *These work extremely well for pullin herrings at UVR

We are presently updating the website, if you don't see what you need please pm me.
Customer service is a very important factor for us. *Custom orders welcome.
Guided trips to UVR are available. *Mack bite should improve as the weather continues to get better between storms

Thanks

That rainbow double flutter looks like a killer, Ken. 8-)

But why do you use such small hooks on your double flutters? Is it a matter of balance and action?

The hook on the large spoon is a 1/0, the one on the back is a #1. Using these sizes produces the best action for this lure. And why a single hook? All the better for catch and release. We have caught many the mack on these lures and have never had a issue with hook size. They are also being used in Canada for Lake trout and in Alaska for salmon, just like they are.
Hope this helps.

Ken,
VERY excellent looking stuff. Once again, superior !! I appreciate all of the hard work it takes to bring a quality product to market. That is the way you continue to do it. That is one of the reasons why your company is listed as a friend on my website.

Great photos too I might add. A picture is indeed worth a thousand words.
