5.5" long and
size, stainless steel thru-wired this is a copy of an original Danny
Pichney A40 Junior metal lip swimmer.
We added the groove integral to keeping a rigged eel
skin attached to the lure. Eelskin swimmers are a deadly way of fishing
Information on how to rig and store this lure can be found
online in videos, and also some shops that have eelskins in stock can
show this to you.
It's very simple and when done properly will result in a fantastic way
to catch big bass!
Many use floss, heavy monofilament, tying thread, or a
small tyrap to hold the skin on the lure.
All kits are
sanded out to 150 grit and require minimal sanding.
Kits are weighted with one belly weight only-can
easily be re-drilled for heavier weight.
Very nice swim action and is designed primarily as a big bass lure.
Casts very well for a metal lip swimmer too!
All components are included except for split rings and hooks which we
recommend a pair of VMC 2/0 treble hooks
for the belly and no hook on the rear.
We use only USA made components in our kits!
simple retrieve on this lure, it will tail wag right on top, and will
dive slightly on faster retrieve.
swimmer is a good intermediate kit. It requires gluing the lip in,
gluing the weight in, minor
sanding, and painting/finishing.
These kits are all turned on our dedicated kit cnc machine and drilled
with precision and duplication second to none!
