I thought it would be fun to put together a list of those things us addicted lure builders can relate to. I will start with a couple that apply to me, feel free to add your own:

You know you are addicted when:

1. Half your t-shirts have paint or epoxy stains on them

2. You find saw dust and wood chips in your bed

3. You have tested a lure in the bathtub or at the local pond at night with a flashlight

LOL so true.

1. When your at the dinner table and your wife/girlfriend is talking about there day and all your thinking about is ideas for you next or present lure. Not even paying attention.:) oops.:whistle:

2. When you pass up a good time going out on the weekend to build baits.:tipsy:

3. When you sit like a dog at the front window waiting for your package of new lure components to arrive in the mail. (I do this allot) Its like opening a xmas present!:yeah:

When you reach in your pocket for change at the local Piggly Wiggly and pull out a hand full of spinnerbait blades and beads.

@ RiverMan

Nice idea for a new thread you've had , would be fun indeed.....:lol::lol:, her'e some adds :

- When at your work you always keep pencil and paper handy to sketch down new lure ideas or designs any free minute ;)!

- When laying in your bed at night the last thought before sleep comes is which work must be done tomorrow on your actual lure(s):) .

- When constantly checking out any common items of wood , plastic or metal , that you come across , if they'd be suitable for making lures out of them :huh:.

But it's not dangerous.......:lol:!

greetz :yay:, diemai

Buying a hairdryer when you are bald as a coot.

Friends start yawning when I talk about vortex geometry.

Spend way too much time in bridal shops.

Take my gram scales to the wood shop and start calculating.

Maid complains about wood dust throughout the house (sorry, I live in Indonesia, maid is normal).

Every horizontal surface in my house is occupied by lure building materials.

Divorced.

Girlfriend falls asleep while I talk to you guys.

I will post more, if you like.

Fill the bathtub with water for 'the big test', FAIL, so it's still full five days later, developing it's own ecosystem, with small spiders breast stroking across it.

You beg everyone for their Mylar gift bags, and clear plastic blister packs (for making stencils) at the family Christmas get together!!!!!!!!.pete

When you hook your wife's favorite koi while testing a bait in the koi pond :)

Snatch a pair of her old fishnet stocking ,it looks like a cool scale patten to you.You have to buy new ones for her so you don't have to sleep on the couch.

Under your Finger nails resembles a color chart.

You examine the bottom of drinks cans before buying.

You have to move spatulas and paint brushes so you can butter your toast.

when your shooting snot rockets that have more grain and texture than plywood.

when you have more needles and syringes laying around than a heroin addict.

when your countertop is refinished with an involuntary clear coat

when your calluses are made from hardened epoxy.

when you save your beer pong solo cups to make into a sealer solution.

when your girlfriend puts a flower patterned drape to block off your workspace to cover-up the maddness that lurks behind (and tells her friends its the laundry room!).

These are great..............the scary thing is, I fit almost every single one of them!!!!!

You know you are addicted when:

At least one of the family pets has ended up with a lure hanging off of them!

Your wife is at the hospital and while visiting her you scan the room for potential lure building items..............and she catches you!

When you are working on one lure idea while thinking about the next two!

When you begin to measure your remaining years of life based on "hours left to build lures".
