    Tommy! Long time no see. I'll check your note, but I'll bet it's about a BC trip or two you're going on. You will go well-armed..

    Hi BigFishMike:

    That looks awesome! I'm not sure if your into making your own lures, but here is a video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XeDDCk6zZYw that shows how to make some awesome stuff. Check out the rest of his channel to see how he makes divers, crankbaits, and recycles old jelly worms.

    He also gives some tips on how to paint/finish lures to give them an authentic look.

    Hope you enjoy!

    Posted today on Facebook by my friend, salmon guide Adam Watson in Tofino, BC, of Tofino Fishing Adventures.

    Mike , Your 'Snail Tracks' spoon was on fire today! 15 fish to the boat today in two hours - 11 of them on your spoon.

    We had a mishap with a hook set today that broke the main line ...must have had a nick or something. Right after chatting with my guest about how 'Snail Tracks' was hot. Good news is the line stayed in the clip and we retrieved the gear and released the little dink on the end.

    Expect more pics of your gear doing work in the upcoming weeks...bite is on in Tofino - with a bunch of smileys and even the odd tyee in the mix.

    These lures look amazing. Really motivates me to start learning how to paint.

    Can you recommend a make/model of airbrush, compressor and paint brand to get started with? Seems most recommendations I see aren't lure specific.

    Cheers,

    It's August (August 1st, but hey, it's the forum equivalent of first light!) - any tips regarding airbrush, compressors, paints are appreciated. Happy to hear from any forum members in the know (I just asked BigfishMike because well, it's obvious he knows what's up)

    From what I can tell the Iwata airbrushes are good to great, depending on how spendy you want to get. I've heard their cheapo 'neo' airbrush does decent work, but requires thorough cleaning after each use. Maybe all brushes do, is that true?

    Is spending more worth it? From what I can tell the only thing worth spending more for is the ability to handle more/thicker paints. Is adding glow pigment powder to paints something the requires a certain type of brush or PSI on the compressor? Seems like theres lots of cheap low psi compressors out there, I definitely want the ability to put on glow.

    And the final (and most important) question: Which paint brand/series have you had success with?

    Any help in figuring this stuff out is very appreciated.

    Cheers,

    Salted
