6.5" long and 2 Oz
size, stainless steel thru-wired this is a super needlefish!
3/8" molded eyes and all kits are
sanded out to 150 grit and require minimal fine sanding.
components are included except for split rings and hooks which we
recommend VMC 3/0 treble hook
for the belly
and a 3/0 dressed treble or 5/0 or 6/0 Siwash on the tail of this lure.
We use only USA made components in our kits!
Very simple retrieve on this lure, either walk

needlefish is an advanced kit. It requires installing multiple lead
weights with epoxy and re-drilling the thru-wire with a 5/32x4" drill
We recommend this is done with a battery drill or hand drill for
safety. It requires sealing, 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!
Can be painted with
Salty's Lure Paint, Createx Air brush
paints, or with acrylic paints and a small brush
from AC Moore,
let them dry thoroughly and coat with a few coats of
clear spray paint or brush with epoxy etc in thin coats for more
Lures need to be finish sealed to prevent water intrusion. Checkout our
Super Coat, it makes a great wood sealer and Top Coat!
