well here is the second batch of lures. one out of yellowheart, one out of paduak, and one out of lacewood. they are all finished with about 4 coats of shellac except for the lacewood one which was dyed with a general finished medium brown die to pop it and give it the appearance of scales and then shellacked. hope everyone likes them

I’m gonna have too! next time i go fishing anywhere where you can catch a fish that is big enough to swallow one of these little guys I’m gonna do it. should catch something big. if i was a fish and i was the shimmering and the holographic effect of the tiger maple I’d bite into it. they won’t know what hit ‘em :)

Beautiful Job, Denis!!

I vaguely remember reading someplace that water will cause shellac to turn white- like if you set a wet glass on a shellacked table top. Do you think this will be a problem with lures?

i doubt it. i have heard that too and the only reason i used shellac over poly is because it doesn’t have the smell of poly which might alert the fishes too it and because of the fast dry time. i will have to test it out though. but i have used water on shellac before and haven’t got much problems.

Nice lures Dennis…for a spin caster. LOL. I have seen these in a variety of catalogs and have thought about them as a fun project but I have been purely a fly fisherman for the past 15 years and think I would anger the river gods if I tried to make one of these. Hey if they don’t catch fish, they are pretty and will look good in a shadow box!
