**Update 15th March 2016**

We now have stocks of ready-to-spray bodies in the following models...

60mm Crank`n`Shad
60mm Medium diving Crank`n`Shad
60mm Deep diving Crank`n`Shad
60mm Slide`n`Shad
80mm Slide`n`Shad
50mm Chunky Minnow
50mm AJ Shad
100mm Walk`n`Minnow

The remainder of the range are currently in progress and will be ready within the next week or so. Delays with orders over the past months have been slower than normal due to having to build each bait from scratch when an order comes in, so by having a stock of ready built bodies, we can now spray orders up as soon as they come in, and get them shipped out within a few days. I apologise for the recent delays, and we are making an effort to greatly improve turnaround of orders with the new stock.

31/08/15 *****NEW BAITS ADDED*****

Two new additions to the range have now been added to the stock page - a medium, and deep diving version of the 60mm Crank`n`Shad crankbait. After the success of the original, there was a need for more models to cover a wider range of depths, and here they are. The medium model runs 4-5ft on the cast (8-10ft trolled), while the deep version will reach 8-10ft casting (18-20ft trolling). As well as reach greater depths than the original Crank`n`Shad, these baits are also very useful for mega slow cranking in shallower water, during cold conditions. Both work beautifully at very slow speeds, so are perfectly suited for this approach. Both are available in all colours (see colour charts page for details), and are available for purchase on the current stock page ( link above).

****Updated prices****

Prices have now been updated on my current range. Please note, shipping is still included in the price of each bait, hence the apparently significant rise in prices. Although I`ve always tried to keep prices down as low as possible to give best value, I do still have to make a living so i`ve had no option but to increase prices accordingly. I hope this doesn`t put too many people off from purchasing baits, but these are still cheap compared to other similar baits on the market so I hope you still regard them as good value. Please note that the Surface Crawlers, and foil finish baits are no longer available in my current range, but will still be available from time to time via my Facebook page, when I build the odd small batch for sale.

thanks everyone for your continued support,

Balsa not up to the task?

For those who may be concerned about the strength of these balsa baits, here`s proof they`re up to the job.
Gavin Scaife of France, managed this superb Catfish over the weekend on one of my Fat Belly Shads, in Jerkbaitmania`s exclusive "Edgell Bomber" pattern....all 53lbs 10ozs of it !!

Well done Gavin, that`s the biggest fish i`ve heard of taken on one of my baits...and testament to their strength....
