Got to say the work that goes into them is stunning How long would it take you to make a single lure (large and small)?

Its quite time consuming really as theres lots of little fiddly processes, i get asked how long all the time and i have no idea really becuase i do them in small batches and as mentioned so many processes. Not quick enough to make it profitable really anyway, i do it mostly for the enjoyment, the smaller lures don't take as long as the bigger ones obviously

Everybody calls me Woody pal so that will do fine, and as for Neil, he is the little brother I never wanted lol! Let me know when you have a few spare and I will meet up and have a session, I might take a few small plugs too, give them some stick trolling on the boat..what sort of depths do they run??

Yeah sounds good to me Wink

The plugs are made for shallow flowing rivers so they don't go that deep, i use them mainly for targetting chub in pacey rivers and perch in shallow canals.

Re: What I get upto when not fishing!

Post by Trash on Wed Dec 12, 2012 4:19 am

right, so this is something im thinking about having a go at. mainly because now im getting into my big jerkbaits im struggling to find many, the tackle shops round here are dire. plus i can see it being enjoyable and rewarding.
so what im trying to find out for now is what sort of materials would i need. what sort of wood to use, since im looking at big lures to start with would i be better off making 2 halfs and sticking them together with a single piece of bent wire through the middle to conect the hooks to or getting eyelets (which im worried wont be held in strong enough) and what sort of paint and laquer would be best to use.
these are the main things im wanting to find out but any advice at all would be appreciated.
