I'm new to lure making. I am actually on my first batch of lures. I've shaped a handfull out of basswood,installed eyescrews,cut for lips/bills. Brings me to my question......What do most of you use to fasten/glue in your bills? What is the toughest and best for water resistant?

5 minute Devcon epoxy works best for me.

I use Devcon Two Ton 30 minute epoxy because it won't eventually turn brown like 5 minute epoxies. Fill the lip slot with epoxy with a piece of wire, push in the dry lip and the excess epoxy squeezes out the back of the lip where you can wipe it away. If you put epoxy on the lip before you insert it, some inevitably gets pushed out onto the lip's surface, which IMO looks bad. If you cut a couple of small slots in the back of the lip, they get filled with epoxy and improve the strength of the lip bond.
