Just wondering who else on this site makes their own lures? I myself got tired of factory offerings (hooks, skirts, hair, overall quality) and began to make my own jigs (teardrop, round, arky, etc., etc.) , spinner baits, chatter baits, etc. I use baked powder paints on my jigs, I had tie with quality flashaboo, tinsel, rubber, and occasionally hair.
With that being said I never decided to tackle hard baits (Jerk baits, Crank baits, etc.). I began tackle crafting about 8 years back and my overall investment grew. At first I partnered with a friend and we shared ideas/equipment back and forth. He took it to the next level and went into business (http://www.northstarbaits.com
), this wasn't an option for me with a full time day job that ties up too much of my time.
Anyone else out there care to share pictures of their creations?
