Tank Test Tuesday

A weekly round up of test tank action from around the globe

Check out this Beauty from Ireland via Mel Handmade Lures and for further inspiration there is a link to his Facebook page Hand carved original that he is resin casting, painting and coating with epoxy.

If you have tank test video you want to add e-mail me at using the title Tank test Tuesday and send me a link to you youtube video,  include a picture of the bait and some details about yourself and where your from
