Do you want hooks and split rings on lures as well.

These will be going on display for our booth that we set up 5-8 a year and they will serve as inspiration for boys Heck if you want them to fish them then they will.

Sounds good I will send hooks and split rings. I build bigger lures for pike and musky. I will send a 6 inch crankbait that weighs about 2 ounces. Don't know if you have those kind of fish in Texas but they can fish it if they want or use it for display.

Send a musky bait I have boy who loves huge baits his line of baits he will be making are big for big fish.

I think they were having a show on the 10th. He said he would announce the winner on the 10th. I know I was having a problem getting on the TU website Friday and Saturday. Finally was able to this morning. I sent out a lure also. I hope he got it in time?

Thanks fishwhittler, and thank you to youthinthewild and the boys!!!

I just learned from youthinthewild that he only got three entires in the contest. Stop and think about that for a minute - out of the thousands of members on this forum (17,713 to be exact), only three entered this contest.
The lures were only for display and for the boys to judge - they were going to be sent back to the makers after the contest. How much does it cost to ship a lure? About $5. We spend hundreds of times that on lure-building supplies each year, but we can't spend $5 to mail one lure to try to help out boys who don't have fathers?
I know for a fact that the TU community has a lot of great guys in it. They've helped me out a bunch, and just looking at their work in the gallery is inspiration to try to become a better builder and painter. We help out guys trying to learn to build lures - why not help out a guy who's working with boys who for one reason or another don't have fathers?
There's going to be another contest in January. Let's try to make it much better than this one was.
Youthinthewild, count me in for the next go-round. I'll have something ready to go whenever.
