GLC provides a large variety of custom designed and built fishing tackle products for our worldwide customers. The following is an overview of some of our major production items:
EASY HUB SKIRT (US Patent #7,805,880)
GLC proudly introduces our patented easy on, easy off hub mounted lure skirt which consists of silicone skirt strands hand placed around a retainer hub. As a result of this unique hub mounted strand design, the strands project out from the hub at a 90 degree angle creating a perfect umbrella shape and a pulsating action like no other skirt on the market. This easy hub skirt is private labeled by Z-Man Fishing Products as the EZ Skirt™ and by Strike King as the Perfect Skirt™. This new, great-looking skirt is sure to revolutionize the fishing world with its quick-fitting collar to become the new industry standard. This amazing skirt fits quickly and easily onto your favorite spinner-bait or jig head to keep you fishing more and rigging less. Our easy hub skirt comes in lengths from 1 1/2 inch micro and min versions for crappie and pan fish to 8 inch Big Game versions for saltwater and larger freshwater game fish like Muskie. The skirt comes in a variety of colors and can be fitted with any custom combination of colors/patterns to coordinate with your own paint schemes. Imagine 70 strands of colors, precisely aligned in 5 strand increments and seamlessly blended into your back, belly, and line colors, to deliver the perfect "umbrella" profile for fishing. Imagine having the option of putting 14 different strand colors on a single skirt. Because our easy hub skirt is made from 100% silicone with no filler added, it will not sun fade or deteriorate and it will come back to shape, time and time again.
Our easy hub skirt is the first truly new design innovation in the fishing lure skirt market in over 25 years. Introduced in 2006, the easy hub skirt has caught the industry by storm. In addition to being easily replaceable on virtually any wire bait or jig head design, it provides an unparalleled level of style, coloration flexibility, and constant pulsating action. With our easy hub skirt, the fisherman can change the color and style of any skirted lure in seconds, without time consuming lure changes or re-rigging. Thus, keeping a lure in the water where it should be. Just grasp the skirt by the flexible silicone collar, thread it onto the hook/head through the center hole in the collar and push it up snug over the lures’ skirt retainer hub. To remove and replace with a different color/style easy hub skirt, just grasp the skirt collar and pull it off. Do not pull on the silicone strands when replacing skirts, this may damage the strands. Our easy hub skirt and our entire line of easy products also serve to eliminate the costly practice of having to purchase multiple lures just to acquire a variety of skirt, blade, and trailer styles and colors.
EASY HUB TRAILER SKIRT (US Patent #7,805,880)
GLC proudly introduces our new, patent-pending easy on, easy off lure skirt with integrated trailer strands which consists of silicone skirt strands hand placed around a retainer hub with additional strands hand place on the hub to create a lure trailer. As a result of this unique hub mounted strand design, the strands project out from the hub at a 90 degree angle creating a perfect umbrella shape like no other skirt on the market. This skirt is private labeled by Z-Man Fishing Products as the EZ Trailer™ and by Strike King as the Perfect Skirt™ with Magic Tails™. This unique trailer skirt is an expansion of our revolutionary easy on, easy off hub mounted skirt. It consists of either a 2 thick cut strand or 21 standard cut strand straight back trailer in combination with the 70 strand umbrella. It is offered as a one or two piece unit. The one piece unit takes a 70 strand easy hub skirt and adds a 3 to 4.5 inch 2 or 21 strand trailer. The two piece unit is a 3.5 inch 2 or 21 strand wrap skirt constructed without the usual center tube or hub, and with our innovative top cap that fits snugly behind any of our 70 strand easy hub skirts. It allows the fisherman to covert any of our easy hub skirts into a easy hub trailer skirt and to change trailer colors at will. The one piece trailer can be custom produced with up to 14 different colored strands on the umbrella and up to 3 different colors on the trailer strands. The add-on hub trailer for the two piece unit can be custom produced in up to 3 different strand colors. And with over 6,000 colors of silicone sheets produced in our silicone sheet molding process, the styles and variety of our finished easy hub trailer skirt is endless. Unlike any other lure skirt on the market, our easy hub trailer skirt can be custom assembled to match the coloration of any custom painted jig head. The silicone molded hub provides a tight, secure fit to any jig head, yet allows for easy replacement. The hub can also be produced in over 10 different standard colors for the ultimate in color coordination. This product is truly an innovative finishing touch to a revolutionary new skirt design.
GLC’s NEW ACTION TRAILER SKIRTING
GLC proudly introduces Action Trailer Skirting, our line of patented easy on/easy off skirts with Live Bait Image and Custom Action Shaped Trailer Strands. These custom shaped skirt trailer strands can be integrated into any of our patented skirt designs including the Easy Hub Skirt (US PATENT #7,805,880), the Easy Band Skirt (US PATENT #7,647,722), or the CapWrap/Big Easy Skirt (US PATENT #7,647,722). These uniquely shaped trailers can also be incorporated into our first of its kind Silicone Tube Skirt. For years, anglers have been adding relatively stiff "soft plastic" or PlastiSol fish prey images and action tails as trailers to their skirted lures to create a fish attracting appearance. GLC has now created a silicone lure skirt that incorporates these images and shapes into the skirt, thus creating an irresistible, fish attracting appearance, profile, and action. The advantages are clear. You can now get the age-old commonly used appearance of a "skirted chunk/trailer" without having to purchase soft plastics that have little action and limited durability. We have integrated the appearance of the skirted chunk into the functionality of our easy on/easy off skirting design. When used on our patented easy on/easy off skirt designs it is now easier than ever (and less expensive) to add and interchange fish prey images and action tails to any jig or wire bait. Lastly and most importantly, the custom shaped silicone trailer strands incorporated into our skirts are extremely breathable and provide an exceptionally dynamic pulsation and action. And because we use low durometer "Super Soft" silicone, our Action Trailers have a buoyancy much greater than standard silicone or soft plastics. The visual images of natural game fish prey combined with their pulsating action invoke aggressive reaction strikes. Action Trailer Strands for our patented easy on/easy off skirts are currently available in Squid Paws, Molded Paddle Tails, Frog Feet, Crawfish Claws, Minnow Tails, Lizard Legs, and Curly Tails. We also produce custom bait image trailers shaped to emulate Baby Minnows, Shad, Sand Eels, Ballyhoo, Ribbon Fish, and Frog Bodies. Because of our unique manufacturing methods, we can quickly produce any custom shaped trailer strands desired with no set up cost. These new skirts have a life-like appearance and movement like no other lure skirt or soft plastic trailer. Our minnow tails, feet, claws, paddle tails, curly tails, and pads swim through the water when retrieved. We use a super soft silicone with flotation additive, so our feet and claw trailers will close and paddle while moving and open up in a natural, lifelike position when settled. Our fish fry image trailers give the presentation of a school of Fry, irresistible to big Bass and other predatory species. We also offer these skirts in textured silicone. These heavy textured strand skirts provide fullness and body much like the traditional soft plastic chunk. Only they are more flexible and breathable, and when combined with our swirl (Living Image) coloration, they create an exceptional prey-like appearance. They also tend to hold air bubbles and then release the bubbles slowly while jigging, thus further simulating live bait. In addition to our flat silicone image and appendage trailer strands, we now offer 3D molded trailers strands. These include paddle tail, crawfish claw, and frog feet trailers. These molded trailer strands provide more body and 3 dimensional appearance. The paddle tail trailers are the same as our popular EZ Legs add-on paddle tails and provide a dynamic kicking action.
GLC’s NEW EASY HUB PUNCH SKIRT
We also make a Punch Skirt hub for our Easy Hub Skirt, so now any of our Easy Hub skirts can be used and interchanged on your Punch Skirt Rig. These new Punch Hubs are available in clear, black, brown, green pumpkin, red, and chartreuse.
GLC’s EASY BAND SKIRT (US Patent #7,647,722)
Introducing the first ever patented easy on, easy off fused band lure skirt. This skirt is private labeled by Z-Man Fishing Products as the EZ Band™ skirt. Some fishermen were somewhat critical of our easy hub skirt in that it does not have the “fullness” of the old cut & banded skirt. So here at GLC, we put our engineering minds to work and came up with a solution. Our solution was to create a cut & banded skirt with some of the major attributes of our easy hub skirt. This new easy on, easy off fused band skirt is produced similar to a traditional banded skirt with a 40 to 80 strand umbrella and 40 to 80 shorter strand hook cover, giving the same fullness of the traditional banded skirt. But instead of a rubber band used to hold individual strands in place and fix the skirt to the lure hub, our easy band skirt incorporates a silicone band that is molded in place and a pronounced hook hole in the center of the skirt. The result is a skirt that can be easily removed and replaced without disturbing the strands and a band that will not dry rot in your tackle box. No more bands popping and strands flying. No more strands pulling out when you try to remove and replace your skirt. Just easy on, easy off, just like our easy hub skirt. Additionally, the accent strands stay in one place and the skirt can be easily rotated on the lure to position accents where you want them. With over 6,000 colors and print patterns of silicone sheets produced with our silicone sheet molding process and print shop, the styles and variety of our finished easy on, easy off fused band lure skirt is endless. The 30 shore silicone molded in band provides a tight, secure fit to any jig head, yet allows for easy replacement. The hub is clear or can be produced in over 10 different standard colors for the ultimate in color coordination. It is also available with a 21 strand trailer. Like our easy hub skirt, the easy band skirt will take the skirt market by storm.
GLC’s HOLO-SIL SKIRT STRANDS (US Patent #7,740,726)
Our new patented Holo-Sil holographic flash silicone skirt strands is another first for GLC Fishing. It is an innovative new design for the saltwater skirted teaser lure, as well as for freshwater lures and jigs. This skirting material is private labeled by Z-Man Fishing Products as the SilaFlash™ Skirt. Z-Man’s SilaFlash™ Skirt is a GLC patented Easy Hub Skirt incorporating our new patent pending holographic flash silicone skirt strands. This new flashy skirting material consists of metallic/holographic foils and Mylar laminated with silicone or urethane. This new product answers the request of every seasoned offshore fisherman by providing a teaser skirt with the incredible action of silicone rubber combined with the shine and flash of a stiff Mylar stranded skirt. It also appeals to the freshwater fisherman looking for an enhanced shine and flash not offered by any other lure skirt on the market. When sun light hits this skirt it emits a blinding flash like no other skirt on the market. And the new 3M holographic material that we use emits a full spectrum of colors along with that blinding flash. Our line of holographic flash silicone skirts have gloss, shine, flash, and action far superior to the nylon, PVC, and rubber stranded teasers on the market today. They offers the same flash as a Mylar or metallic foil stranded skirt, except they have the life like action and durability of a silicone rubber skirt. And when utilized on our easy on, easy off hub mounted lure skirt, it has a perfect umbrella and is easily replaceable on our special saltwater teaser lure head or virtually any freshwater jig head available. For the offshore market, we make our easy on, easy off hub mounted lure skirt with our holographic flash silicone strand material with 60 to 70 strands in standard 4.5”, 6”, and 8” lengths in special 3M holographic strands, chrome strands, and metallic colored holographic strands in all of the commonly used skirt colors. For the freshwater fisherman, we offer our easy on, easy off hub mounted lure skirt with our holographic flash silicone strand material in our standard 70 strand 2.5” model and as a 2 piece easy on, easy off trailer in 3.5” and 4” lengths. The holographic flash silicone strand material can also be used on our new easy on, easy off fused band lure skirt, our new CAPPED WRAP skirt, our new BIG EASY skirt, and any standard cut and banded skirt.
GLC’s NEW SILICONE TUBE SKIRT
GLC has created the industry’s first SILICONE TUBE SKIRT. For many years now the tube skirt has been a mainstay in the fishing industry. However, until now those skirted tube lures have been manufactured by molding and slitting cheap, non-durable Plastisol. And the skirt strands have been gummy and non-responsive to hydrodynamic action. Now GLC has created a tube skirt that incorporates the durability of a silicone body with the pulsating action and durability of silicone skirt strands. We also manufacture custom rattle jigs in a variety of weights for our new SILICONE TUBE SKIRT.
GLC’s NEW SWIRL SKIRTING MATERIAL
In cooperation with Gary Klien and Cliff Pace, two of America’s top Elite Bass Pros, GLC created the industry’s first swirled and blended color lure skirt strands, creating unique lure skirt colorations previously unattainable. In each skirt strand there exists randomly swirled base color pigmentation that exhibits a rainbow like swirling of multiple colors. The aesthetic effect of which is to create a lure skirt that imitates the swirled coloration effect of certain fish prey species. Like our holographic flash strands, swirl skirting material can be applied to a banded skirt or any of our line of easy skirt products. Skirts/BOSS Outdoors has created a unique line of Swirl tabs and skirts private branded as Living Image™.
EASY PROP SKIRT
The EASY PROP Skirt is yet another great innovation from GLC Fishing. It is an innovative new design for applying spinning flash to the saltwater skirted teaser lure. The EASY PROP hub incorporates the new holographic flash silicone skirt strands and when coupled to our specially designed teaser head, it creates a saltwater teaser lure with a dynamic array of shine and flash for attracting big game. And following with the design theme of all of our easy products, the EASY PROP is designed to be easily replaced. This allows for an unlimited versatility in skirt and propeller color combinations. The EASY PROP fits to our specially designed teaser head with screw-in skirt hub. The EASY PROP is not the first saltwater teaser lure with rotating propeller, but it is the most unique, trouble-free, and effective unit on the market. Other propeller teasers permanently incorporate the propeller into the lure head. Some even use ball bearings for enhanced rotation. Our propeller is incorporated into the replaceable skirt. We use no metal parts to jam and corrode. We employ a vacuum metalized durable nylon propeller on a silicone hub which is Teflon coated for friction reduction. At normal trolling speeds, our EASY PROP propeller teaser lure will outperform any on the market today, with the added benefit of interchangeability, versatility, and our unique patent pending holographic flash silicone skirt strands for unmatched flash and action.
EASY RATTLE SYSTEM
Our new easy on, easy off rattle system is another innovative expansion of our revolutionary easy on, easy off hub mounted lure skirt and is focused on the jig fishing market. Our easy rattle system consists of a specially designed twin ear hub with 2 of our state-of-the-art brass drum rattles attached. Our new rattle design provides for enhanced frequency and sound quality, and when combined with the superior umbrella and action of our easy hub skirt, it creates the best, most effective rattling jig skirt on the market today. The rattles are easily removed and reinstalled on any of our easy hub skirts with the special hub which allows for total interchangeability for style and coloration. The rattle hub can be produced in over 10 different standard colors for the ultimate in color coordination. This easy rattle system employs our specially designed polycarbonate rattles with brass drum ends that mount on the easy collar loosely, allowing unidirectional movement and maximizing sound production. Our rattles are designed to uniquely produce the exact underwater sound frequency known to attract fish. Bottom line, unlike other rattles that just make a little noise, our rattles make the specific sound that attracts big bass and other fish species. And because they are mounted to the easy collar for unidirectional motion allowing them to pulsate with the skirt pulsation pattern, they produce more sound than fixed mount rattles. Our easy rattle system consists of our specially designed twin ear hub with 2 of our state-of-the-art rattles attached.
Our new easy on, easy off paddle tail trailer legs are another innovative expansion of our revolutionary line of easy products. Our patent pending EASY LEGS can be quickly added to virtually any jig or wire bait to enhance its presentation. When combined with our easy hub skirt, EASY LEGS create an exceptional pulsating, paddles bait presentation and fish attractor. Like all of our easy products, EASY LEGS come in an array of colors, print schemes and styles and can be easily interchanged. Thus, the fisherman can change the color and style of the lure in seconds, without time consuming lure changes or re-rigging. Thus, keeping a lure in the water where it should be.
Our new easily replaceable lure blade comes in all of the popular sizes and styles typically used by the fisherman. Our new patent pending EASY BLADE simply clips on and off of any looped appendage on the lure, thus allowing quick and easy change out of the lures blades. Unlike other blade interchange systems that employ a plastic clevis clip and/or screw on end blade devices, the EASY BLADE incorporates the clipping device on the blade itself. Therefore it can be attached to any looped appendage on the lure such as a clevis, swivel split ring, or similar. With our EASY system, the fisherman spends less time changing lures and more time catching fish.
Our new easily replaceable offshore trolling lure skirt eyes are another logical fit to our easy product line. The new patent pending EASY EYES are designed to used in combination with our custom made brass, aluminum, stainless steel, and epoxy teaser lure heads and our Big Game easy hub skirts. Our EASY EYES can easily be fitted on any of our easy trolling lures without re-rigging to provide flying wing 3D holographic eyes and enhance the presentation of the lure. With our EZ system, the fisherman spends less time changing lures and more time catching fish.
EASY HUB TREBLE SKIRT (US Patent #7,805,880)
Our new EASY TREBLE is yet another innovative expansion of our revolutionary easy on, easy off hub mounted lure skirt focused on the hard body lure and small spinner lure markets. The EASY TREBLE consists of a specially designed 20 to 45 strand easy hub skirt with micro cut, 9 gauge strands in lengths from 0.5 to 1.5 inch customized as an innovative treble hook dressing. It fits easily on and off of various size treble hooks and provides superior action and presentation. As with our other easy products, the EASY TREBLE can be custom produced with up to 10 different colored strands on a single skirt. And with over 6,000 colors and print schemes of silicone sheets produced in our silicone sheet molding process, the styles and variety of finished EASY TREBLE is endless. The silicone molded hub provides a tight, secure fit to any treble hook, yet allows for easy replacement. The hub can also be produced in over 10 different standard colors for the ultimate in color coordination. Because the EASY TREBLE is made from 100% silicone with no filler added, it has a much more impressive action in the water than nylon and feathers, it will not sun fade or deteriorate like rubber and PVC, and it will come back to shape, time and time again. This product is truly a treble skirt design perfection.
CAP WRAP SKIRT (US Patent #7,647,722)
As a cheaper alternative to our easy on, easy off hub mounted lure skirt, GLC proudly introduces our patented CAP WRAP skirt. This great-looking wrap skirt offers the easy on, easy off feature of the easy hub skirt at a fraction of the cost. It fits quickly and easily onto your favorite spinner-bait or jig head to keep you fishing more and rigging less. For lure manufacturers and assemblers, it offers a tremendous opportunity for cost savings while providing a better looking, better functioning end product. Our Cap Wrap skirt is comparably priced to the old style banded skirt while dramatically reducing the lure assembly cost associated with stretching banded skirts over the lure hub, aligning strands, and trimming. The resulting umbrella on our Cap Wrap skirt is far superior to that of the old style banded skirt, giving the lure a much better presentation both in the water and out. Unlike other wrap skirts on the market today, it does not employ a central hub and includes a pressure bonded cap that dramatically improves the umbrella effect. Just like the easy hub skirt, our Cap Wrap skirt comes in lengths from 1 1/2 inches for crappie and pan fish to 8 inches for muskie and larger freshwater species. The skirt comes in a variety of colors and can be fitted with up to 4 colors/patterns to coordinate with your own paint schemes. Because the Cap Wrap is made from 100% silicone with no filler added, it will not sun fade or deteriorate and it will come back to shape, time and time again.
BIG EASY SKIRT (US Patent #7,647,722)
GLC proudly introduces our patented Big Easy saltwater teaser lure skirt. As a magnum version of the Cap Wrap skirt, this skirt is the first of its kind easy on, easy off saltwater teaser bait skirt. This amazing skirt fits easily and quickly onto our specially designed teaser/smoker head to keep you fishing more and rigging less. In certain cases, it can even be replaced without removing terminal tackle. Our design allows for quick skirt replacement to change colors or replace skirts damaged by toothy fish strikes. The skirt comes in a variety of colors and can be fitted with any custom combination of colors/patterns to coordinate with custom painted teaser heads. It can be installed on the teaser/smoker head to produce a straight back streamer effect, or inverted to produce a perfect umbrella effect. The Big Easy comes in lengths from 5 1/2 inches for mackerel and smaller game fish to 14 inches for billfish. Because the Big Easy is made from 100% silicone with no filler added, it has a much more impressive action in the water than nylon and Mylar, it will not sun fade or deteriorate like rubber and PVC, and it will come back to shape, time and time again.
GLC’s NEW KING BLING TEASER
The Kingfish Teaser has been a mainstay for saltwater fishermen for many years now. GLC has created a new style Kingfish teaser that incorporates our easy on, easy off hub mounted skirts in strand lengths from 2” up to 6”. We manufacture custom skirt hub/heads in plated brass, polished stainless steel, ultra-clear epoxy, and vacuum plated plastic. To create a Kingfish teaser with a perfect umbrella and pulsating action like no other. And when we include our patent pending holographic flash silicone skirt with Swirl Coloration strands, you get our New King Bling Teaser with a pulsating flash and life-like, bait fish imitating vertical color banding that drives fish wild. Our King Bling teasers can be rigged separately or as a daisy chain teaser. The standard coloration Holo-Sil Easy Hub teaser has been private branded by Z-Man Fishing Products as the new EZ Teaser™. The Swirl coloration Holo-Sil Easy Hub teaser has been private branded by Fishizzle Fishing as the new King Bling™. Either of these Easy Hub teasers can be customized to any color combination, to attract any Pelagic species.
GLC’s NEW EASY HUB SKIRT TEASER
The Kingfish Teaser has been a mainstay fish attractor for saltwater fishermen for many years. Our Kingfish teaser incorporates our patented Easy Hub skirt in strand lengths from 2” up to 6” mounted on an array of custom skirt hub/heads to create a teaser with a perfect umbrella and pulsating action like no other. When we include our patented holographic flash silicone skirt strands, you get a teaser with a pulsating flash that drives fish wild. Our easy teasers and easy holographic flash teasers can be rigged separately or as a daisy chain teaser for use with our custom made Spreader Bars and Umbrella Dredges. These easy teaser daisy chains have been private branded by Z-Man Fishing Products as the new EZ Teaser™. The easy teaser can be customized to any color combination, to attract any Pelagic species.
GLC’s PROVEN TUNA WORM SAND EEL
Our Tuna Worm sand eel is similar to other plastic sand eel lures except for a few major refinements, such as adding protruding pectoral fins as stabilizers to keep the lure from spinning, a hollow body to give it more buoyancy, a more rigid body, a re-designed paddle tail, and making the lure out of 100% high grade silicone instead of Plastisol or PVC for durability and environmental friendliness. It is available in six sizes from 70 mm to 320 mm. Our Tuna Worm sand eel has a superior action and is more durable than the original PVC and Plastisol versions. It won’t sun fade or deteriorate in the tackle box like the others. And because we inject two different durometer silicones in the body and tail, it has a harder, more rigid body with a soft, life-like tail.
The GLC Tuna Worm has taken the South by storm, proving to be the secret weapon for offshore big game fishing, especially Blackfin Tuna and Dolphin. We have numerous reports from Charter Captains and Guides throughout the southern Atlantic waters of big game fish by-passing traditional teaser lures and live baited hooks to attack the GLC Tuna Worm.
GLC CUSTOM LURES
GLC creates custom lures lure companies globally. We have high volume capabilities for spin casting, die casting, blade stamping, laser cutting, CNC machining, wire bending, electro-plating, color chroming, vacuum plating, custom hand painting, plastic and nylon injection molding, silicone compression and injection molding, and lure assembly. Over the past 10 years, we have designed and created many highly effective lures, many of which have been taken on and private labeled by our customers. We can also take your lure concepts and ideas and design the final product for ultimate functionality and production efficiency. Or, we can work directly from your established design drawings, specs and CAD data. We have a fully equipped CNC machine shop and make our own molds and dies, so we can custom produce virtually anything you would want. Our GLC lures are designed with one simple goal. Create a species-specific lure that will catch more of that species fish than the other leading brand lures on the market. With this in mind, our lure design process includes a one year testing and design enhancement cycle consisting of rigorous testing by our team of pro, semi-pro, and amateur (want-to-be pro) fishermen and design modification based on testing feedback. At the end of the testing/refinement cycle, if our lure doesn't get greater hook-up than comparable top brand lure models, then we don't introduce it.
GLC CUSTOM LURES & COMPONENTS
GLC creates custom lure components for leading tackle companies worldwide. We have high volume capabilities for die casting, blade stamping, laser cutting, CNC machining, wire bending, electro-plating, vacuum plating, plastic and nylon injection molding, silicone compression and injection molding, and custom mold/die design and production. We manufacture an array of components including but not limited to wire forms, weights, snaps, ball bearing swivels, blades, unfinished jigs and lure bodies, rattles, 3D eyes, bait stripes, weed guards, soft bait keepers, hook protectors, and add-on trailers. For the do-it-yourselfers, we make Aluminum pour molds, mold insert pins, skirt assembly tools (pocket & bench), and silicone soft bait molds.
SILICONE SHEETS & TABS
GLC produces the highest quality silicone sheets available in the industry today. Unlike others who add chemical fillers and/or 10 to 20 percent recycled silicone, GLC uses 100% high grade Dow Corning silicone for each and every one of our molded sheets. This process yields the most life-like action and the purest coloration available on the market. Once compounded, our 100% high grade silicone is extruded and precisely weighed to ensure consistent molding. Our precision, high compression sheet molding process produces consistent thickness in standard freshwater, Muskie, and Big Game saltwater skirting. It also provides for an even, thorough curing, thus our sheets and tabs lay flat and straight. The GLC sheet is quite distinctive from any other silicone sheet on the market. Our computer matching pigment shop can match any silicone color imaginable and our 3 roll mill provides thorough distribution of silicone catalyst, color pigment, and glitter during the compounding process. Our print shop serves to further enhance the distinctiveness of the GLC sheet. We utilize a full range of printing and coloration techniques including silkscreen scaling, external glitter application, and a foiling process patented by and licensed to us by Z-Man Fishing Products, Inc. of the USA. Once printed and foiled, each sheet is cured in our 3 meter ovens. GLC currently produces over 4,000 colors/prints for our silicone sheets and tabs. Our tabs are cut with high compression 4 post cutting presses and custom made cutting die sets instead of the traditional clicker press. This gives our tabs and skirt strands a more even, straight cut. In addition to our traditional silicone sheet coloration and printing capabilities, GLC also offers custom art design and printing, complete with holographic foiling. We also have created textured sheets and tabs. This textured silicone is produced in 3 varieties, a light texture for smaller freshwater skirting to create additional action and pulsation, a medium texture for freshwater jigs skirts to provide and fuller body and more life-like appearance, and a deep texture for our saltwater Smoker skirts creating sensational pulsation and smoke trail. In addition to our straight strand die cutting, we employ an exclusive sheet cutting process for our creature appendage and image skirt trailers. This process can easily provide sheet cuts in any design imaginable, such as curly tail strands, wavy strands, pointed tip strands, and strands with the customers name/logo.
GLC now offers a variety of fishing accessories to complement our lures and components. These new items include a complete Dredge Teaser System for offshore trolling, custom made IM-7 graphite Boat Rods, Lure Bags and Fighting Belts, custom designed and manufactured precious metal Sports Jewelry.
