BILLY

The making of a lure

I have decided to produce a lure designed by Loz for his personal use and never before maarketed. From what I am told the action of the lure is similar to the Darter range except instead of a lazy arc action this lure dashes from the start to the finish so based on this I have named the lure Billy (Whizz). There is one main difference between Billy and all other Loz Harrop lures in that Billy is curved all round so there is a lot more work involved in making it. Below I will be putting pictures of each stage of Billys' production, however as I have other lures ot make this page won't be updated daily.
