John Hopkins Dvd

36 posts in this topic

I orderd Johns DVD last week and finally had a chance to watch it over the weekend.I've got to say it is a MUST have for any lure building library.The DVD deals only with PVC lures but alot of what is demonstrated could be used with wood, etc.

I've built lures for years and this really opened by eyes to new building and painting techniques.It can be orderd at: www.Johnscrankbait.com

Let me be one of the first to say well done John.Congratulations and thank you!!...Nathan

Well I just bought it, I can't wait to watch it. The order says it comes with a pre cut blank that's ready to carve. Is the blank a swimbait blank? Or a crankbait? Thanks

I probably made about 20 swimbaits, of which none of them swam right, prior to buying the DVD. The first one I built after watching it, swims great. The paint job was not so great! I will post a pic. Rob

Rob, looks good for the first try! how it swims is the key. color is secondary. i've done well with smallmouth here with a plain white bait.
