is there anyone still making wood lures?

Recommended Posts

Sure, a lot of guys still making wood lures just most on this site don't post pictures or discuss it unless an issue is encountered.   One reaches a level that issues become less and less and more importantly the ability to fix those issues becomes second nature.

I make one off wooden lures for myself and all my resin lures are molds of a wooden master

i would say a large portion of those making their own hard baits carve them out of wood

cool! how about painting patterns what could i use to come out with nice patterns to follow that are standard paint schemes?

My painting skills are ok but it is not my strong point so I don’t offer a lot of advice in this area

The only advice I can really offer is check out YouTube and practice when it comes to painting. Personally I have found the best thing for me has been play with the air bush and try things out till it works.

I think the first cranks I painted were somewhere around 1995. My use of the internet was absolutely zero at that point.

Just get to spraying....:lolhuh:

My first were around the same and no Internet, books, or mentors just plan old stubborn winging it carving along with rattle can paint jobs :lolhuh:

they were ugly as sin but some of them caught fish

My cranks came out fairly well to be honest.  The negative was I was using a Testor's Model Airbrush with canned air.  I had to the float the cans in hot water in my dorm room sink and they used an "anti-huffing" agent in the cans so it didn't take long for the nasty bitter foul taste to develop.

I sometimes use plastic lids (coffee can or baby formula) to cut patterns on.  Its easy to wipe off the plastic to use multiple times. Lurepartsonline also sells patterns for painting.

Like several others, I just started carving and spraying. Good luck!
