I won't fish with it, but I will use it.

I will make a mold in RTV silicone and pour the bait with rigid casting urethane and fish with that. Wood is way too fragile for a detailed bait this size IMO. I will sell them, perhaps actually breaking even, if I am lucky. Building baits the right way is NOT cheap.

As Pat correctly pointed out, I tend to have a few things going at once. Ahem. This bait has been kicking around my desk for a few years.

It is the price of being a sensitive/artistic/creative/cat loving/semi-hippie/jackass.

Very cool. I'm assuming you don't whittle that with a pocket knife. How do you shape it??
