These are my take on Calmac Moths,fun to make,but the bodies are more time
consuming to make than other styles.

Charlie,

These are really and truly different than what I am used to seeing anywhere. They have an historical look to them. Very nice work and welcome to the forum.

I agree with the vintage look comment. Those are great. The first looks like a cicada

They look like something I would find in my great uncle William "Smiling Bill" Jamison's tackle box:

The first three are like the early Peckinpaugh popping bugs from the '20s
Very classic

A thank you to each.The Calmac Bugs,I made in three different sizes.A man from Texas had posted photos on another forum,of originals.I asked if I could get dimensions in exchange for bodies for him to finish.The answer was yes.These are some of 18 I kept of 24.

The next two with props are circa 1940s I believe.I've only seen a photo,and it said the originals were 1 1/2" long.I now make them from 3/4",
to 3 in..These are easy to cast,and have terrific action.


The last four are my designs I spend about half of my tying time working on new ideas.Some times it gets me no where.I make lures to catch fish after fish and a fisherman is proud to own.I'm not a good writer,but would try to answer any questions.I hope you will be happy to see more

I have an original Calmac and the black one would be a spot on match if you took the eyes off. Great Job!
