The Big Reidee Lures Scoop Face is a 9" skirt saddle sized head with a slight taper that straightens out a bit towards the scooped nose. Also contains 4 brass jets to help throw out extra smoke in the water. These lures are designed specifically to target a large variety of fish including Mahi Mahi/Dorado, Ahi Tuna, Ono/Wahoo, and Marlin and other Billfish. Any one of those species is a prime target for these lures.
This head is one of Ron's beautiful and truly original "Now You See It-Now You Don't" Limited Edition "Disappearing Marlin/Ahi" Mother of Pearl scoop face lures. Has a green/gold pearl back with iridescent white Mother of Pearl shell covering the insert with an engraved iridescent Marlin on one side and Ahi on the other side (usually ony has one or the other). The eyes have a dark red center with rainbow glitter and a bright flashy red outer rim. The Marlin and Ahi comes and goes with different viewing angles. Skirted in green glitter/clear with gold glitter and a pink lateral line over pink/white with a yellow lateral line.
The design of these Ahi/Marlin heads took an extreme amount of work and alone would justify a much higher selling price than what is listed. So much time and energy went into each one of these. One thing about Ron is that he spends more time on one individual lure than almost every other lure maker out there - It is not about the money but about the originality and craft. A true work of art, and the true work of a genius lure maker.
