2.5 Oz THE RAT Needlefish Wood Lure Kit
6" long and 2.5 Oz size, stainless steel thru-wired this is a great Sandeel imitation needlefish!
1/2" molded eyes and all kits are sanded out to 150 grit and require minimal fine sanding.
All components are included except for split rings and hooks which we recommend
VMC 4/0 treble hook for the belly and a 6/0 Siwash on the tail of this lure.
We use only USA made components in our kits!
Very simple retrieve on this lure, either keep it up top with your rod at a 45 degree angle, or let it sink and fish the bottom.
This needlefish is an advanced kit. It requires installing a belly lead weight with epoxy and re-drilling the thru-wire with a 5/32x6" drill bit.
We recommend this is done with a battery drill or hand drill for safety. It requires sealing, minor sanding, and painting/finishing.
These kits are all turned on our dedicated kit cnc machine and drilled with precision and duplication second to none!
Can be painted with Salty's Lure Paint, Createx Air brush paints, or with acrylic paints and a small brush from AC Moore,
let them dry thoroughly and coat with a few coats of clear spray paint or brush with epoxy etc in thin coats for more durability.
Lures need to be finish sealed to prevent water intrusion. More information on our free lure forum linked above.
