  1. Making A Living Selling Lures?

    The first distinction that should be made is that crafting lures of any quality & making a living/money doing so are separate. In answer to your question, you can if you are willing to sacrifice, make decisions and to be a risk taker. In order to reach that goal of lure crafting for a living, you need to fully understand is that it requires diligent, hard work & a very savvy business mind.
  2. Pricing Help

    For repaints, we use to operate on the $20/ hr concept. The huge majority of repaints did not require a full hour of "hands on it" from start to finish. The typical cost worked out to $10-12 a lure. That included everything from prep to clear to out the door. For extensive repairs, oversized or jointed lures you could count on additional time and product that pushed the price up to $15-17.
  3. Prodigy crank

    One of my favorite lures to fish & to build: coffin billed, wooden, scaled, Prodigy crankbait in a fairly traditional shad pattern.

    When you crafted your 1st lure 31 yrs ago and you still jump out of bed excited each day like it was your first.
  15. Craw

    Milia, that's a good question with a very simple answer: round head push pins/ needle,.... inexpensive, durable, and effective. Create a round socket using a rounded burr of the same diameter, clip the needle in 1/2 w/ wire cutters, paint the eye (if needed), push the pin into the socket at the correct angle= craw eye, piece of cake...good luck. Finding a flexible, durable, & textured material to serve as antennae was a challenge however.
