These are pretty neat. OK forgive my ignorance, are these functional or just for show? (I don’t fish)

Wow;

Beautiful! I can tell you a fish will hit it, but they’re so nice, I’d eat it myself!

Nice Job.

The lures are great. Do you really let them get wet.

Very nice, when I used to fish, I made a lot of my own lures. That was more fun than fishing.

Man the salmon out of Frankfort MI. would slam those babies. Would they hold up to that kind of abuse. I don’t know if you fish salmon, I suspect you have but they will mangle a new steel lure pretty good. Especially one around 30lbs. Beautiful lures. They look to have good action. mike

kb here yes i use them that is the ones that i can get the correct design the correct bill length, bill width and on the front hook hanger there is a lead weight that has to be perfect for the depth the lure would work the best . when i started to make lures i thought all i had to do was get a piece of wood and start carving. boy there is a lot more to it and then learn how to airbrush all the different designs and colors. ther are alot of them in my junk drawer.i see where the pros that make lures get $25.00—-$35.00 each kb

those look great.
the paint job is fantastic.
I’ve seen the kits in catalogs, though I haven’t attempted one yet.
my father-in-law would like these.

Very cool lures. Have you caught any sushi grade salmon with the pink one yet?

Wow that brings back memories. My grandpa used to own a fishing tackle store back in Jersey. I got to be the stock boy and the worm packer, lol. But I spent many hours quietly admiring the expensive lures. These, are just beautiful!
