The Montana John



I finally got round to finishing a small number of ‘Montana John’ fishing lures.  The lip and single hook make them look pretty distinctive and as lures go I think they are pretty unique. What I like about them best is the running depth at less than two feet I can get them into shallow water without constantly pulling weed from the lip. Jerking them along really makes the best of the dressed tail as together with body it has the look of a jointed lure. The price £12.50 plus postage, See the shop link in the side bar.

  1. They look great Paul. I am completely jealous of your painting and your ability to reproduce identical lures.

    1. I have to fight the urge to make each one completely different, i always want to do a bit of experimenting. Thanks for the complements.

  2. Hi there,

    Congratulation on a very nice looking lure.
    And it swim at two feet... That is nice to see such a shallow diver, well done!

    Have a good day.
