Lure Building / Assembly:
Front: Body Build:
- Drill a 1/4" Belly hole in the front body for bottom hook hanger
- Optionally, drill another belly weight hole, but usually not necessary
- Add required weight (0.15oz / 4~5gms or less) and seal the weight hole

Rear: Body Build:
- Using a hacksaw make a slit (1/2" or so deep) on the rear body, starting from the wider end and towards the narrow rear end.
- Band saw is not recommended. Just sawing manually is the best method.
- Takes about a minute or so to cut the lure. Make sure to hold the rear in a vise and take safety precautions while cutting.
- Fit the Tally Wacker blade into the slot with Epoxy and let it dry as per the drying time.


- Seal the lure body with sanding sealer or clear coat
- Paint the lure as per your liking and then finish with a top coat

Front Body Hardware assembly:
1) First affix a nose grommet to the front of the lure body. Use a little super glue if needed.
2) Then insert the through wire into the front body so the looped end sits over the nose grommet.
3) Add a 0.495" tail grommet to the back end of the front body and use a tiny bit of super glue to affix the grommet. Ensure the through wire passes through the tail grommet
4) Next insert the brass bead into the through wire on the rear end.

Rear Body Hardware assembly:
1) Affix a 0.495" tail grommet it into wide end of the rear lure body with a bit of super glue. Ensure not to block the hole of the grommet.
1) Pass the through wire (coming from the front lure body) into the wider end of the rear body via the tail grommet. Then push the wire out of the narrow end of the rear body.
3) Add a 0.325" tail grommet to the narrower back end of the rear body and use a tiny bit of super glue to affix the grommet. Ensure the through wire passes through the tail grommet
4) Add the remaining second brass bead as the final component at the rear.
5) Complete the assembly with a tail loop at the rear end of the lure.
6) Finally bend the tally wacker tail blade using your fingers to the left or right by about 35 degrees or so. The direction of rotation of the tail body will depend on which side you bend the blade.
