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.
Today learning how to make fishing tackle doesnt have to be like back when I was boy. Even though there isnt a ton of information available the art of making fishing lures has come a long way to helping the beginner. The first step is having a basic knowledge of fishing tackle, design and function and knowing of what lure making supplies you really need. After that the fun can begin as you try your hand at making fishing lures. Here are a couple quick tips to help you out in making wooden fishing lures. 1. Most wooden lures in your tackle box are made of a few different types of wood. Balsa and Basswood are the most common woods used to make fishing lures. However you can make some really great fishing lures out of more common wood found in you local home improvement store. Cedar makes some great fishing lures and you can use both red and white cedar. I have had great success using both. They carve and shape fairly easily and due to the woods water resiliency finish up nicely.
2. Easy Ready to Go Painting Patterns. Did you know you can use your wifes or mothers used nylons to get some great patterns on your fishing lures without a lot of fuss. By using an airbrush you can take advantage of some of the patterns on used nylons to make some great subtle patterns on the sides of wooden fishing lures just make sure to use an old pair or you just may find yourself in the dog house if you use your wifes best Sunday nylons. 3. Always seal your wooden plugs before painting. This was something I didnt even know to do when I was a boy during my early fishing lure making attempts. It may sound like a small tip, but it goes a long way to making some nice fishing lures. Just use some wood sealer from your local home improvement store but here the crucial tip. After doing so sand down the fishing lure once more using very fine sandpaper, or even a brown paper bag. Wood sealers have a tendency to raise to raise the grain in wood, and this would result in an un-even paint job. It doesnt take a lot of time to do, but it helps to create a better looking fishing lure.
Sinking lures. These are perfect lures for deep-water fishing, where you can establish a preferred depth where the trout will strike the lure. The preferred depth is established by a counting down prior to the retrieval process. The same depth can then be applied in other casts to locate the school of trout. The distance of the sunk down lure within a given time is known as the sinking rate of the lure, which suggest the depth or distance of the fish location. Soft baits. This type of lure is made of soft rubber and comes in a wide variety of forms and shapes, with attractive marching colors and sizes. It is suitable for saltwater and freshwater fishing. Soft baits can be used on weighted jig heads applied in the same way as the jerk bait providing a plug is used. Jerk baits. These are passive or still lures that do not move by it self but should be made alive by the angler. Motions are created by shaking or jerking the fishing rod, or any movements that make the bait look alive. As far as it can go, the jerking of the lure can imitate a wounded or injured fish which is quite tempting for the trout fish.
