Hybrid-Skirt Trailer Hook in Bleeding Shad, on a black backgound

The NCB Hybrid-Skirt™

The Hybrid-Skirt lure design blends together bucktail (deer) hair along with a rubber skirt.  The bucktail, all of which is dyed in shop, is first hand tied onto the head of the lure.  A rubber skirt is then overlaid on top, giving a unique multi-textured appearance rarely seen within the industry.  The movement of the bucktail displays a "sinewy" motion, much like the fins and gills of a fish.  This natural hair further works to conceal the hook, helping to mask any unnatural shine given off that may result in fish not biting.  Additionally, the rubber skirt adds an outward flare to the bait, giving the illusion of a stocky appearance while retaining a nimble profile.  Each lure is hand tied with high durability, waxed thread.  No rubber bands are used.

Product Update: HoloFlash Eyes

An ultra realistic "HoloFlash" eye has been incorporated into a variety of NCB lures. Each eye has been digitally rendered from a high definition photo of a real fish and overlaid onto a specially formulated, multi-layer background. When exposed to light, an iridescent flash radiates across the eye, illuminating a holographic base layer.  Before leaving our shop, the HoloFlash eye is sealed with a top coat of crystal clear high impact resin, ensuring that it withstands the elements with ease.  Additionally, the NCB letter logo is inlaid within the pupil of the eye.

NCB makes some proven baits! The Hybrid Vibe is one of the best vibration baits I’ve ever thrown. It has an awesome hunting action and comes through grass nicely. It also doesn’t get hung up easily as some others. His structure and swim jigs have produced some big fish for me as well!

When I won the ABA RAM Truck Open, I was throwing the Hybrid Vibe.  After landing 40 fish (at least 12 over three pounds), the lure was still intact.

The pride put into these lures shows in their quality! Built to take a beating, fish after fish. Your gunna want to hide these from your buddies!

Amazing service.  Real high quality hand made lures. Shipping was cheap and extremely fast. His colors and his vibe are amazing. When you get them in the mail, you are immediately impressed. Great job!

Awesome hand tied lures. The gentlemen who runs the business is respectful and awesome at what he does. Whether it's customer service or just simply a talk about bass fishing, he'll take the time to make sure you're taken care of.

About The Brand

After being routinely disappointed in the longevity and overall quality of cheaply made, mass produced bass lures, I began to hand tie my own.  Upon posting a few pictures to social media of some experimental lure designs I created (namely the Hybrid-Skirt), a few requests turned into a handful.  What started out as a passion project during my senior year of college at Penn State quickly turned into a burgeoning internet business beginning in the fall of 2016....(cont.)
