Introduction to Lure Making

Well, here it is! The Lure Making Web Site many of you have waited many years for. I am sure you are much like I am. Whenever I sit at my work tackle work bench and begin making a few lures my mind begins to drift off into nowhere land. I begin thinking of fishing trips, and I even recollect the many individual fish I've taken in the past and dream of trips, excursions and fish that I hope and dream will taken in the future.

This is an updated version of our first lure making web site. I've added many new illustrations and photos and many more details. The instructions to making more lures and many more tips which I hope will make your tackle making life more enjoyable. Instructions to new and exciting lures will be added over time as time permits. 

What you will see and read here is information gathered from my years of designing and making lures and from many of you who have been making and selling tackle for years. I would like to take this opportunity to thank many of the tackle manufactures and fishing guides who I am in contact with on a regular basis and do not hesitate to share valuable information on the making of fishing tackle.

I hope you find the Lure Maker's Work Shop easy to follow, practical and most of all I hope it gets you started in what I believe is an incredibly fun hobby or possibly even a business. This manual has been written with the simple goal of introducing anglers to the world of lure making in a concise and practical manner. As a partner in Real Pro's SportFishing I am lucky to speak with thousands of anglers across Canada and the United States and now the world each year, many of whom said they wanted a simple guide to making the most practical lures.

Please remember that not every lure you assemble, design from scratch, or copy from a brand name lure will work perfectly without a little tinkering or redesigning. It would be great if they all worked on our first attempt. Don't get discouraged if a few, or even most of them don't work out as planned. Be prepared to take a few apart and rebuild them from scratch. It's part of the fun. But in no time at all you too will be building a wide variety of incredible fish catching lures.
