Found a box of Cruiser bodies from our move last year, the cruiser series will be painted on an “as requested” basis since it has been redesigned into the Cruiser-T trolling lure for Small Lure Co.
This is a slight variation to what I normally make in this pattern. Pacific saury are slightly lighter in color and the sheen is slightly different than their Atlantic counterparts. Scale pattern use is a more traditional halfbeak like the ballyhoo.
