Time to kill. I thought about making a hard bait that incorporated feathers into the body. It was a strange assembly but in the end I came out with something. The next one will be better. I don’t know if anyone else does this. The thing is made out of white pine, finished with feathers, an airbrush, and UV resin for the topcoats. As always I make everything except the hooks. (Ah… the birds made the feathers of course).

There's video of the construction here.

Ha! You’d be more than welcome. Moxie. Maine state drink. Actually I don’t drink but moxie is pretty close to it. No alcohol but tastes a bit like a tar/kerosene mixture. Besides if we had it on the boat we’d be arrested. Not allowed.
