Marko, "gaybob" is the combination of the colors on the two skirts, outter and inner skirts.

Tracy

Can you still get the complete "Slash" lure like in Hally's photo and also the "Grimace skirts" (Yamashitas)? I still have an original "egg shaped" Evil Apollo and spare skirts for it but finding the replacement yamashita skirts for my 501 "Grimace" has proven difficult.

Many people have released sliced face lures with "Evil" skirts since the Harbord days and most run the skirts the opposite way ie: upside down.The aussie Hollowpoint lures have skirts pretty close to the originals in colouring.

Guys,

I ask a question and go away for a couple of days and when I get back there are all these fascinating posts and lovely pictures.

I just love this site and the enthusiasm you all have for this great sport - any excuse to share.

Thanks for taking this one up. Perhaps we'll get a colour catalogue together of grreat names - I wish I know how to cut and paste this sort of stuff.

I'm skirting up half a dozen of Dustin's heads at present and seeing your photos in this and previous posts shows me the standard to aim for x( But I'm getting better:)

Cheers,
Chris

hi Chris - Correct skirt selection (length- diameter- thickness) is half the battle. Match the diameter of the lure's tail piece to the skirt. Some heads you can't do the reverse tie without making a bulge behind the head, those kinds you need to friction fit, or glue. Some heads fit and swim better with Yo-Zuri skirts than the heavier longer skirts, others vice versa. That's why you need a big inventory of skirts!

cheers - dustin

Hi Dustin,

I have a confession to make...
You remember two of those heads? A pale milky-blue tube (straight sides and angled face) and a bigger, shorter purple/clear chappie. They were the ones with slightly oversize flared bits to tie skirts to.

Well, the skirts now fit nicely 'cos I filed the flares down about 3mm :+ !

I'll show them to you next time.

Cheers,
Chris

Some beautiful lures pictured here.

Forgive me if this has already been answered and I missed it. The skirts on those Kiwi lures are Area Rule Fishskins, are they not? If so the maker made a good choice. Besides being gorgeous, those puppies are super tough. I've never seen anything with the strength they have.

KISSMYASS, those skirts on your lures are Peter Boone's aren't they? If not, Seven Strand? My guess remains Boone.

IMO the Area Rules are a new step forward in skirt design. The toughness mentioned above is truly amazing and the colors speak for themselves. Outstanding!

Boone? You gotta be kidding. Those things are thick, heavy, not easy to skirt lures with due to lack of flexibility, generally pretty crude. One of their few saving graces is that they're durable and inexpensive. Yes I've used them, they're pretty far down my personal list of lure skirt choices. Credit where credit's due, Boone does some nice bird teasers that I like very much, but unless he's advanced his skirts by leaps and bounds, give me a 7Strand/Pakula/Yo-Zuri/Ocean Lure Concepts any day.

My money on Paco's skirts is Yo-Zuri. Japanese company who for a very long time made the world's best skirts and still make great lure skirts especially in the smaller sizes. The ones on Chris Hall's lures I believe are Yamashita skirts.

cheers - dustin

I believe my post was directed to (#25) and intended for UK Chris and, from the post itself, KISSMYASS. I await their responses and am not interested in answers from any others unless they can be constructive and polite, thank you almost all.
