This isn't the thread for anyone easily mislead,or just starting up in the world of lure angling.
Plenty above I'd love to have in my collection that's for sure.

Are you still just making small amounts for yourself,or have you been inundated with orders from people/friends?

Thanks again

Tim, I tend to make what i'm fishing with at the time, so for instance in summer i make more ultralights as i like to have multi species river sessions, I tend to just make 3 of everything, keep one for myself and sell the other 2 to fund buying other fishing gear. Not been selling allot laterly as i've been getting into fly fishing for pike so have been making myself flies.
