Napaman has a great blog on a young fellow going through some hard times. He asked so little, thought I’d see if I could get on board. Never made a fishing plug before but I had enough wood for this project and thought it would be fun. Don’t know how the fish will feel about these, but as a wood lover they would catch me. I hope this drop in the proverbial bucket might help. My prayers, and best wishes to Grant. Please check out the blog on napamans site. Thanks…......................

Jack ~ Mighty kind-hearted of you. That is some fancy looking wood, if I were a fish I’d go to it. The figure of the wood looks just like those patterns that shallow water reflects. The new secret weapon for bass(wood) fishing.

Those should be able to catch even the most discriminating of fish.

Some great lures. Even if they don’t catch fish. But they’ve caught my heart.

Thanks you guys, this was very interesting to do. A lot goes through your thought process while making a project like this. So hard when the young suffer and I can be fine and choose what I want to do.

Those are too cute. Could always put some chicken liver on them hooks to increase its chances!

Very neat! What do you call the top one, he looks like a “squiggly” thing. Beautiful wood too.
