Been awhile since I posted anything on LJs. Just wanted to show a few of the first maple fishing lures I made on the lathe. Just experimenting on shapes, colors and patterns. Will they catch fish?... who knows.
These were all turned from maple cutoffs and fancied up with an airbrush. Coated with a final thick coat of epoxy. I’m headed down to Florida tonight to pitch them into the saltwater. Wish me luck eh?
They range in size, but most are between 7” – 8” in length.
I purchased the metal lips, screw eyes, and hooks.
I hope they inspire you all to turn a few. A lot of fun and they’d make great gifts for your beloved anglers. Inexpensive to make, and fairly simple to build.
