Exploring the science of catching fish-what colors and shapes fish are attracted to and how to replicate them-the handbook tells which lure designs will attract which type of fish.
Outlining the difference between surface, floating, diving, and sinking lures, this manual offers full-sized carving patterns and step-by-step demonstrations.
Additional information about hardware, hooks, and jointed lures is also included, as is an elaborate gallery of historic and contemporary wooden lures.
For the active fisherman, fishing lure collector, or the crafty carver and painter, this full-color handbook provides more than 20 projects to make and use.
Award-winning carver and fishing enthusiast Rich Rousseau likes to do them all, so he decided to share his fish-tested designs for creating a variety of fresh & saltwater lures.
Divided into three main chapters, Making Wooden Fishing Lures, covers everything from what to know about choosing the right wood, types of lures, extra options to add to a lure, how to dress a hook, and full-sized bonus patterns to help develop skills.
Along with the wonderful lures that can be made by hand, there is a full-color gallery of historic and contemporary wooden lures, accompanied by an introduction from top collector Butch Bartz.
Rousseau's love of lure making and fishing in general is evident in the Fun Fish Facts and entertaining stories that are littered throughout.
Making Wooden Fishing Lures is a great catch!
