Another Salty's kit
exclusive! 2 Oz
size, 5" long, stainless steel thru-wired this is an exact copy of an original Danny Pichney darter!
will swim with a nice darting action from side to side. These were fish slayers
and we've re-created them!
This is a size favored by many and one of the best designs because it
has only one belly hook. Easy fish release and MUCH safer while
The 2 oz dahtah mimics the size of much of the bait found here in the Northeast.
All kits are
sanded out to 150 grit and require minimal sanding-see the special notes
All components are included except for split rings and hooks, which we
recommend a VMC 2/0 treble hook for the belly
and 5/0 VMC dressed siwash tail on this lure.
We use only USA made components in our kits!
This lure is an advanced kit. It requires gluing/epoxying the nose wire in, minor
sanding, and painting/finishing.
These kits are all turned on our dedicated kit cnc machine and drilled
with precision and duplication second to none!
Can be painted with
Salty's Lure Paint, Createx Air brush
paints, or with acrylic paints and a small brush
from AC Moore,
let them dry thoroughly and coat with a few coats of
clear spray paint or brush with epoxy etc in thin coats for more
Lures need to be finish sealed to prevent water intrusion. More
information on our free lure forum linked above.
We carry a full line of epoxy topcoats, hooks, paint, etc here:
Special notes on finishing this lure.
Do not use any more than 220 grit sandpaper on the nose of this lure.
If you sand the nose too much you will ruin the action of this lure and
it won't swim right.
I recommend that you very lightly "debur" the edges of the face of
the lure using light finger pressure in a direction from the outside to
so that you don't cause any splintering, and very lightly touch up the front of the lure
with 220 or 400 sandpaper so that you don't remove any stock.
Don't use a real thick coat of epoxy on these, keep them lightweight,
and always use a loop knot on the front, never tie direct.
