It’s been a quite some time since my last post. Apologies for that.
Today I’m reviving the blog with a quick update featuring some photos of Lamia‘s Cygnet (color: W). This finely crafted topwater lure instantly caught my eye when first photos of the release popped up just a few weeks ago.
I’m following the work of Kanagawa-based lure builder Hidemitsu Jimbo’s since a while and really like his clean and elegant lure designs as well as his minimalistic, yet compelling color patterns.
The design of Cygnet is without doubt inspired by Heddon’s Big Bud (designed by Jack Davis in the 70’s), but puts an interesting new spin on the original concept and design. Cygnet is available in six stunning patterns and I was quite lucky to get hands on the minimalistic White color way. The custom-made lip and metal parts are making for a fantastic contrast against the white body coating, while dark eye spots and accenting coloring are adding some compelling details.
With a length of 78 mm and an approximate weight of ~24 g this fine lure should be fun to use and I’m looking forward to taking it with me to Spain in less than two weeks from today.
