All of these home made in the last few days, some I've created the shape myself by casting a cylinder and then using a pillar drill as a lathe. Others are copies of commercially made lures, I make silicone mould then create head inserts with eyes etc, and then pour casting resin. Still learning techniques, but made a few I'm proud of, just hope they can catch the fish.
The new boat hull is being laid up as I write this, and I'm in the UK for a while to make some lures. Commercial trolling lures are loads of money, while we have a pile of them on the boat, I wanted to have a go at making them myself. Essentially they consist of shaped bits of polyester resin with flashy stuff inside to form the lure head, this is then attached to vinyl or latex "skirts" very similar to overgrown muppets.
I'm having great fun making moulds from silicone rubber and latex, ba
