They look great.
I recently just got back into bass fishing as a good friend recently bought a piece of land with an eight acre pond. Several of us fished it for the first time last Labor Day and the results were outstanding-I lost count of my personal in the net at twenty-six bass ranging from 12" to 16+" and the big fish (not mine) was 21".
So now jazzed up after coming home (six hours or so road trip) went to a local big box sporting goods store to stock up on the latest and greatest bass surface lures-wow five to seven bucks+ a piece only to be possibly snagged and lost on each cast!
Decided to (first attempt) build my own surface plugs now working on #48.
I was then invited to a pre 2019 Christmas gathering at the ranch and of course brought my by then dozen or so hand made plugs and was told that the fish were on the bottom in warmer water-OK but I'm still going to drown what I brought-it rained the whole two days I was there but with a small daylight respite of about an hour-bank casted during that time and netted three 14" to 16" bass all on my hand made surface poppers, what a thrill to hook a fish on a lure of my creation!
They look great.
Fred Arbogast would be proud.
Nice looking lures and I am sure even a bigger thrill to watch one hit a top water lure that you made. They are catching some monsters down here in Orange and Lochloosa Lakes. You need to come down here and test some of them.

Those are sweet
Of course, there are fly fishermen (and women) that tie their own flies. But making your own lures? Hey - why not? They look great and you're catching fish. Sounds like a great hobby!
Nice job, some good looking plugs.
