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.

If any of these lures arent a part of your fishing arsenal they should be added sooner, rather than later.
Spinners. A spinner includes a blade that can freely move on a spindle to create a spinning or turning motion when it is retrieved from the water. The spinning movement creates a flashing effect caused by light reflection on the turning blade. This resembles the glittering fish scales and motion.
