I originally made this as a personal side project - maybe start an etsy store or kickstarter.
Long story short, while testing them out, one my prints made its way into the hands of a young man with autism. I never thought that me doing something like this could somehow make someones day a little brighter. So, here it is!
Northern Pike silhouette turned into an articulated "swim" lure
Three models total - two lure variants, one "toy" with the full pike head and no eye screw holes.
The lure models have holes for 216 eye screws.
Swims upright with eye screws - used 4mm splits. Go bigger if you are catching bigger.
Eye screws can support over 24 pounds.
Infill density >10% more so for buoyancy
4x4x4 for shell - adds some strength to the articulation
Take a peek at https://youtu.be/nA67gwqxwwo for a swimming video.
Have fun and good luck!!!!!
