The paint job looks better in person, I wouldn't change a thing, and the rainbow reminds me of the Mt. Lassen fish, big red blood bands and cheeks.
My Deps 250 Sliders have feathered hooks front and rear, and they get BIT. I think it hides the hooks WELL, but I dunno, sometimes I think it looks like fins twitching during the retrieve. The red feathers might look like bloody fins?? Or maybe it's the latest craze like feathered earings?? Doesn't matter as long as the fish like it, I do.
