To catch a fish with a lure that you made yourself is one of the most satisfying experiences an angler can have. This book explains, in text and drawings, how to craft fishing lures that are more effective than those you buy. By making your own lures you’ll beat the high cost of tackle, while developing a creative and satisfying hobby that requires just a few tools and easily obtained materials.
Lurecraft shows you how to design lures for your hometown waters, so they’re better suited to local conditions and catch more fish. Another advantage of carrying handmade lures is purely psychological: it’s only human to not want to lose expensive tackle, so when we fish with store-bought lures we tend to hesitate before casting around rocks, branches, and other obstructions. But it’s the risky spots that offer the most fish, and with a good supply of handmade lures you’ll have the confidence to take those chances and reap the rewards.
Here you'll find instructions for building plugs, surface lures and poppers, spinners, spoons and buzzers, jigs, trout lures, steelhead and salmon lures, and lures for big water fishing. The author explains the science of fish attraction - why lures appeal to fish - and covers tools, materials, and basic techniques for working with wood, metal, wire, and paint. Clear illustrations and detailed instructions show you the design of each lure, the materials with which to build it, the procedure for crafting and finishing it, and the appearance of the finished product.
