My son got a plastic lure making kit for me.  This is my first shot at it.  It is interesting anyway.  DT

It's pre-fab molds.  He got them from www.lurecraft.com.   I also found some great injection molds at www.jannsnetcraft.com.  I made some watermelon brush hogs with black flakes and took one of em down to the neighbors pond.  Two casts, two fish, but the last fish destroyed it so I came back home.  DT   ##$%#1115

The melting pot works fine, but a few glass measuring cups and a microwave work a lot faster.  Also, stop by a hobby store and get some empty, plastic bottles with squirt tops for your special color mixes.  DT

Eons ago I bought some stuff from Netcraft.  I have never tried making my own worms, but I have tried making rapala style lures, using balsa wood.  I think they are still in my tackle box.  Never felt led to use them.   @--0--0117
