soft plastic lure fiddling

Post by senkosam »

When weather doesn't permit, I'm down in the basement workshop smoking my pipe, listening to the news or watching movies on the Roku while messing with lures that I make either by pouring hot plastic or cutting and fusing plastic parts together using a candle flame.
Some of my best lures for all species of freshwater fish have been discovered in my well organized workshop:

(BTW, the barbel on the floor has been collecting dust for over a decade...)

Plaster of Paris has allowed me to make copies of lures no longer made such as Uncle Josh's pork rind frog (never could figure out the name):

..and another way too expensive to buy:

I can't pass up a sale and found a way to secure this similar skirted jig trailer:

Composite designs work better than most of the usual ones sold and there's no limit what you can come up with. Don't like the tail ?, substitute another using a flame (curl tail cut off and replaced by a spike tail):

Here I added a Joker Grub 3-prong tail to a tube:
