I finally finished my 1st 3 Pc Gill
*Wakes on slow retrieve/Dives 1-2 feet and DOES NOT "Blow-out" on fast retrieve (Which I happy about)

Started out as a 4 Pc but sanded a bit too much so I decided scrap the last section...

Kind of unique Joint configuration ...Not a "V-Cut" like I have done in the past...fairly tight but still allows good movement and clacking sound.

Took for ever to complete but I happy with the results-Please Let me know what ya'll think

As much time as it would take for me to make something like that, I’d be scared to get it wet!

Great work! Looks cool.

Beautiful! I’m sure the fat lady bass will appreciate it this spring. And winter. And now!
