My First Handmade Lure
« on: July 18, 2012, 09:35:10 AM »
I made my first lure yesterday hand shaped made the hangers & bib all from scratch now is ready for paint. I don't think any lure manufactures should be worried as the cost of time & materials it would  retail  for around $200   :)) .Anyway it will be ready for the next Cod Trip maybe get me a Greenfish off the surface nothing would be better than that.
Cheers Brad

Brad,
You might want to take a stand at the lure expo Fitzy's got going mate. At $200 per they'll be standing in line. Frank Prokop may call you at any time! I just love Cod on surface lures.

Brad the cheapies are good for base colours but Iwata make some good ones with two stage triggers you should look at like the revolution. ive been trying to make paddlers like yours but having a bit of trouble with how they sit in the water did you have much trouble?

I have been working on a HEAVY DUTY Spinner bait for you blokes.  My problem is to find a Cod now to test it on and not a lot of time to do it before the show.  And the weather hasn't helped.

There's some awsome talent here I must day. It has almost inspired me to get off my bum and get whittlin'. I've got a half finished, no make that half started lure on the desk in front of me I may attack it again one day.

Yes but look on the bright side, you can then go fishing or will have the money make another one. By the way Brad, I'm looking forward to the next installment of fishbrain productions. Great stuff.

I will get one just have to off load some stuff in the garage , I made a cod lure as well but I put a stainless steel bib in it so it sinks but it swim great may be a good thing but I think a snag will clam it.
