Default annual lure coloring contest :(

Well, I have exhausted all hope for the coloring contest this year.
Things have just changed for both companies.
Production and timing just won't work with either Rapala or Buzz at Yakima Bait.
Understand that with Kwikfish, Carmen was a major player, handling so much of the extra work that went into this, and the mag lips are being produced differently and in another location that makes it difficult to impossible to do something like this, now.

I'm just bummed. I have called everyone that I know to get this going.

I'm so sorry. If you have any ideas, let me know!

Jen

Please don’t feel you have any reason to be sorry; you’ve gone above and beyond for so many so often

I don't understand, how much different can it be from their own designing process?

Yakima Bait only requires a minimum order of 72.

No worries if you don't want to do the color contest. Just trying to share some potential options.

I was thinking the same thing. I'm willing to help out if there's work to be done.

How about a, I Made It Myself, contest. No manufacturer involved. Only rules, no spinners, no flies.

So if Yakima Bait still does custom paint jobs as long as a minimum of 72 are ordered, what's the road block?
