bottle cork baits

bottle cork baits

Guess , that I had posted these somewhere in a thread before in unpainted condition , even made a video of two of them still blank , ....you can find these on my "YouTube" channel(61diemai) !

Anyway , they are made from plastic wine bottle cork , a very buoyant material , the prop blade of the "Globe" style lure is homemade from 0,5mm stainless steel sheet , all lures painted with modelmaking enamels .

    There is so much around the house that is overlooked I too love making bottle cork lures. Each one of these 3 lures are awesome.:D You have inspired me again;)

    Thanks a lot , .........actually these kinda baits are quite easy to shape with grinding gear(sanding disc or belt sander and "Dremel" coarse sanding drum) , thoug the surfaces won't come out that extraordinary smooth and they won't be that accurate .

    Still have other shapes on my mind like a mouse or multiple sectioned crankbaits of this artificial cork material , ......I always find it interesting to shape something to catch fish out of suitable stuff of already given dimensions .
