    Here's a taste of some of the new patterns for this season, lots more coming.

    All of the Zitz family will be in short supply this season. Production problems that can't be fixed in time for this winter. Lots of work down the tubes, but oh well, just keep painting I guess.

    Here's some of the new Model 34's in the new paint fade pattern:

    Here's Jiggin Eagles favorite fade pattern on Lil' Minnies and one of my own:

    Hope you like them!

    Looks like i better get my order in for this year. I have to say that once i recieved my order from last year, they were my go too lures.
    I would still have most of them, if i can just keep my buddies paws of them. Top quality, and fish getting machines.

    Love em!:)

    Here's a pic of some of the new offerings for this season. Supplies of these will be limited to 95 pcs ea. These are 2 of the 3 patterns in this size with the bend and bead. These are Zitz sized blades. Final bead color will likely be the darkest red I can find. Here are some other color variations I will try.

    Years ago when I fish perch more heavily, I would fish them alone. If they were finicky, I would add a piece of chicken skin to give it some taste so I could get more second hits and they would hold it longer. I try to leave a little room under the barb so it will fit.

    I finished the 3rd color pattern last night and beaded all of my stock of this type in two colors red and purple. The above pic has been re-beaded. There will be 100 pcs total of each pattern, more next season if they are popular.

    The center group glows white and green w/glow yellow/black eyes, green and black glitters, hammered nickel backs

    I'm painting as fast as I can to have as much as possible ready for the 15th. Many patterns may not be done til a bit later.

    That's OK Harry, Take your time - I was worried that because I was heading north that weekend for the 15th and wouldnt have a computer for the week that I'd miss out. Hopefully there will be a few left when I get back. :)
