Making your own lure's

Post by Dan » Mon Aug 27, 2007 7:41 pm

Has anyone here tried making their own lure's? I have a bit myself and would be very interested to see what designs other people have come up with thumbsupsmilie

@ hotrods. the bib has been pinned in place by two screws and there is enough bends in the wire work to hold it in the araldite so it could probably handle a marlin thumbsupsmilie

Here's one i've been mucking around with over the past few days, i've given it a few coats of paint since the photo's. It will need to be rubbed back when the paint dry's and given a few more coats of base paint and then i can add some sort of pattern.
