Each hand tied baitfish imitation is built on a stout Mustad Ultra Point 32608n hook. Molded lead heads with 3-D eyes are individually painted to compliment a truly unique bait.

"Brian Schmidt is one of the most wonderfully creative guys I've ever known. Whether it's hand carving a rat bait or designing fly patterns that bridge the gap between Flyfishing and the conventional world, Brian's work never ceases to amaze me. Just when I think I've seen everything, Brian will send me a shot of his latest creation that sets the bar even higher. I'm never easily impressed, but Brian manages to surprise me every time."

"Brian is both innovative and creative as a great designer. While he understands fishing, he’s one of the few in the industry that thinks outside the box. He has already made a big impact on the fishing industry, and i’m sure it’s just the beginning."

"At this present time, given the very competitive environment within the custom bait market - It's difficult to believe that there are still designers that are consistently evolving, creating innovative baits. Brian Schmidt is one of these rare individuals - from concept to design, and finally hands-on craftsmanship - Brian not only understands aesthetics, but also the practical science behind what makes fish react."
Capt. R. Andrew Cummings
Tackle Industry Consultant/Guide
"Brian Schmidt is one of the most innovative and visionary anglers I know. Put it this way: In a blind test, if you put 100 new products in a room and let me tinker around with them… then ask me to choose my top five favorites... odds are that Schmidty's fingerprints would be on three or four of them (and those would be the only three or four he'd worked on). This is a thinking person's sport. It's all about puzzle solving. Brian is a puzzle master."

Whether it’s a pitch-black moonless night or a blue bird day, the Matte Rat will ring the dinner bell with its lifelike S-shape waking action. Purposefully placed Tungsten ballast weights ensure both long, effortless casting and accurate waking. In addition to stainless hardware used, a center-pin tail connection offers a solid, durable anchor for any soft plastic worm to be used or replaced. All Matte Rats are hand-shaped, hardened and sealed to ensure durability, while each is individually hand-painted making every one unique in appearance. The Matte Rat gets its name from the highest quality matte finish Epoxy that is used to protect the piece from extremely sharp 1/0 EWG hooks and ensure long-term use. Weighing in at 1.3 ounces, the Matte Rat doesn’t require a heavy swimbait specific rod, giving even an entry level swimbait enthusiast the confidence and opportunity to catch the fish of a lifetime.
