“Hand Made Wooden Lures Often Outperform Mass Produced Plastic Lures”
In the age of mass produced, imported lures, there is not only a place for hand crafted wooden lures, there is a growing need for them.
Mass production has reduced the overall quality and uniqueness of the lures on offer to everyday fishermen. These quality are important because they directly relate to the number and quality of fish you can catch. Using inferior quality lures, or one the fish see often and have learned to to take can make fishing really tough.
Hand crafted wooden lures have a unique appearance, create unique sounds and vibrations and are usually made to exceptional standards. But these are just a few of the reasons that hand crafted lures will pull trophy fish out of places previously thought to be fished out!
