    Hello Anglinarcher ... nice to hear that... In case you plan to come down here for fishing, you may need to plan at least three to four days... A couple of years ago, my boss came from USA (he is a fishing fanatic, and a captures record angler) I introduced him my brother in law and they went some places for fishing around Lima. He did not have enough time to go to the Ica where i go for fishing. Just let me know and maybe we can arrange something ....

    Hello Ron.... it is incredible...I like a lot to read about great conquerors of human past. I have read a lot about Alexander, Hannibal, Peter the Great, Attilla, Napoleon and others... Recently I was looking for a good book about Mahmud. I'm sure here I will learn lots of things.

    Drying station help

    Hello Sfrey37, That's exactly the same microwave motor that I use in my lure dryer. I went to a electrical shop and pay them for preparing me an special transformer from 220V to 21V. In your case you may have to buy from 110V to 21V. The motor is excellent and it has the right rpm. I have my machine working without any problem for a while, and I can dry up to 12 plugs (5" long each).

    Hard Bait concave lips - spooned or cupped

    Hello Ffhng2, thanks for your tip I watched the video and gave me some new ideas to get concave lips ... something else, thanks for the safety tip...
  8. Hello TU friends I do my own poly-carbonate lips for my wooden plugs. Recently I was wondering how to do some kind of little concave lips, like spooned or cupped lips (I'm not sure how to called them). I heard someone in the Forum shared a tutorial explaining how to do that. Can somebody help me to find this material or has tips that I can follow to spooned my lips? Thank you very much...
  9. Hello TU Forum, This morning after learning about this Forum, I subscribed right away. A friend from Germany told me about it. Well, I live in Lima-Peru. Like many of you friends, fishing is my passion, but life is tough and I can escape for fishing as much as I want. Then, I had to create alternatives to satisfy my passion for fishing. Today, I split into three parts my love for fishing: 1) escape for fishing; 2) Do my own homemade lures; and 3) Collecting lures…Let me tell you a little more of each one. Escape for fishing, I like to go for saltwater and freshwater fishing. First Saltwater, I practice surfcasting most part of the year, from the shore line with the waves up to my waist or chest. Also, in summer time I do some trolling next to my beach house. I like to fish Corvinas, Flounder, Groupers, etc. Second in freshwater, during winter time I like to go to up to the highlands looking for some trouts. Do my own homemade lures. I like a lot to do this. Probably I am the only one who do what I do in Lima. This complementary activity has turned into one of my favorites hobbies. I began doing my own flies and suddenly I start doing lures, and since two years ago my own wooden lures. In addition to this, I began to develop my Youtube channel (find me as ANTONIO999US) where I post videos to show my work, my projects, my lures collections, and my fishing activities. Collecting lures, in my fishing life I bought different brands of hard lures. Bomber, Rapala, Storm, Mirrorlure, Yo-zuri, DUO, Daiwa, Shimano, Megabass, etc. Actually I do not know how many plugs do I have. Given that always I take care of my lures (I wash and rinse every single lure that I use after coming back from fishing) I still have lures when I began fishing... along the time, I was using different brands, now I stay with Japanese Duo and Daiwa, which are excellent plugs for the kind of fishing that I practice. I do not have an introduction video in my channel, that something I have to work with, but I would like to share this one, where I show my first dozen of wooden lures I made. At this time, I want to tell you that I named all my lures ATTILA, because I always admired Attila the Hun as a warrior of the ancient times of Europe. "These plugs are the Attila Fat Minnow" Something I would like to say is that each Attila Fat Minnow is one of a kind wooden plug, because I made them with my hands and it is impossible to do two exact ones... Also, I numbered each wooden plug I make. The Attila Fat Minnow is a wooden plug with these characteristics: - 4.5" long - Weights around 1oz each, - Weight shifting system, - Two Japanese saltwater treble hooks #01 - Shocking colours - Reflective holograms - 3d eyes (halves to give a mean look) Well, I do not want to bored you more, here is a link to my video: “100% Homemade Wooden Lures” I hope you like it. Please contact me through the Forum or my Channel, in case you have questions, recommendations or something to criticize… The first dozen of my homemade wooden lures
