@ lofty

Very nice one again , ....as usual , ...top notch lure thumbsupsmilie thumbsupsmilie !

But I'm just wondering , whether you have a lot of missed hook-ups on the rear hook , as the nippers might stand in the way somehow ?

Or your local target species would usually deeply inhale their prey , so that the hook would still find good grip ?

I've noticed such issues with local European pike , ........some US largemouth bass lures , particular those with weedless hooks , won't easily nail them , ....pike require free swinging and larger hooks that stick to their bony jaws immediately .

cheers , diemai howdy

Dieter the Yellow Belly and Bass will have a few wacks at a lure and then there mates will think I want a bit of that when they are on the chew but the Cod inhale the lure,Have you given the FAG I sent you a last year or has it ended up in the collectors cabinet.I would be happy if you kept it .Lofty
