How to make fishing lures is one of those hobbies that is extremely fun to learn and very satisfying. Theres no feeling that can describe catching your first bass or trout on a fishing lure that you made all by yourself. The problem is there isnt a lot of information out there in learning how to make fishing lures. Most people start off in the hobby through a lot of trial and error. I was no exception to this. Back when I was a boy I used to marvel at all the fishing and experience for a 12 year old boy, trying to carve out fishing lures out of your moms lures in my tackle box and wonder at how fishing lures were made. My first few early attempts at making fishing tackle didnt quite turn out. In fact the results were down right hilarious. Back then there wasnt hardly any information about how to make fishing lures at all, so everything had to be learned through experience broom sticks and painting them with your car modeling testor paints. I still remember running down to the water with my first fishing lure that I had made. It didnt wobble, I think the paint job only lasted a few minutes before starting to peel and hang off my lure like wet noodles. But it sure was a lot of fun.
A fishing lure is any object which is a close imitation of a life fishing bait. There are tons of lure types and styles that you can choose from, depending on your fishing situation, types of fish and its behavior, location of rivers, lakes, weather, method of fishing and so fort. These lures become very technically sophisticated, since they are able to simulate the movement, vibration and color combination exactly like the living prey. Lures are integrated with a single, double or treble hook to catch the fish when it takes the lure. All of this sophistication, simply trying to cheat a fish, is provided for the fulfillment of fishing enjoyment.
A lure is something that tempts and entices, and a fishing lure is enticing and tempting to a fish. This description may apply to live baits, but we generally do not mean something live when talking about fishing lures. We mean something which acts as if it were alive, that appears alive, that creates, for the fish, an illusion. You might think that since fish have tiny brains, they are easily fooled into thinking a lure is a living, edible thing, but fish are one of the oldest creatures on earth with a past that has sharpened their instincts, their eyes, their ability to detect real from the fake when it comes to food. They have an innate memory of the way their prey moves through the water, the way it wiggles and squirms and moves its appendages, its natural form and face, its oils, its smell. To fool a fish with a lure is not as simple as you might think, but yet, with the correct combination of elements, the larger brain of man can create a lure that will not only fool a fish, but spark its appetite.
