This new bait is (reportedly) working like a CHAMP on Palestine right now. At the request of a friend, I decided to try to make a feather jig to match. Body color is pretty unique, this was as close as I could get.

Looks good to me! Maybe there are some color chenille that could get closer, but one can't have every color made for sure!

LOL!!! You were going to be my next call, to see if you had anything closer. I don't have a plastic bait in my hand, but it appears to be between lt orange & peach colored.

I like it when they want it bad enough to suck it down their throat....
I see that happening several times with your imitation also.....
NICE...

I was thinking it looks peace color too with a very slight lean to a little Orange too. I don't have any of Danville's Peach to compare it, but it could be close enough I am not sure. The thing I have that maybe would be worth a try is Danville's Nylon FL Pink, but it's a lot brighter. One thing about it is that their Rayon Pink looks nothing like the FL Pink so maybe take a look at that?
Also Estaz makes a Peach, but doesn't so much look like that, lol! Let me try to get a picture of their color chart for you to see. Maybe I PM later, but have to leave right now. I will look more!

Okay I have a couple colors that seem to kind of be in the ball park. These are brighter, but probably not as bright as these pictures.

Coral Rayon.....


FL Pink Nylon.....

Sorry guys, y'all need go back to the drawing board roflmao
Good looking jigs, but you've totally missed the body color.
The name of the lure should be your 1st clue and I used a light cinnamon base.

The picture that was sent to you, was not a good representation of the color.
Click the link in my signature, then look at the Slab Bug....if you click on the picture it will enlarge........
