So something that has been a "bucket list" idea for me for a while is to make a timber lure with hand tools.
For some reason I started whittling today.
I had intended to do tiger style lure around 3".
The reason being, that a lot of the old makers started by knocking off the tigers.
But I shrank it a bit - I decided to give this a crack to run for a shallow water flatty...











Didn't take real long, even with no power tools.
Used super glue to seal the timber, giving it a bit to dry out.
Then I'll try to paint it. Although my daughter wants to paint it for me... We'll have to see. 
Hook hangers are screw eyes I pulled from an old yank lure. Bib is a bit of an old CD. 
Not shooting for longevity here, obviously. 
Then hopefully I find something dumb to eat it, and I can say job done and go back to buying lures the easy way...

NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT.
give it a test swim, see how it goes.
then catch a fish, then kiss your fishing goodbye as the illness takes over and you become a lure making hermit.

It swims. Tight little wiggle. Might need ballast or a heavier hook but pretty happy.
One fish then it (and I) can retire.

Give it a go Kimo.
I'm not especially handy - it was easier than I anticipated.
I suspect a decent paint job is still being me though.

So... CDs don't make strong bibs once they are exposed to glue...
New bib from a broken laser pro. 
And the boss got her way and put some color on.

Cheers guys.
I dread to think how people did this before lure lovers and YouTube...
I've been watching masters at work for a long while leading up to this.
