Not only is it relaxing and therapeutic, but it puts awesome custom lures in your tackle box. And that means a much better chance of a once in a lifetime fish the next time you’re out.

Yep, even those like me that don’t have an artistic bone in their body. Paint control? Pfft! Yeah right, I can barely hold a crayon.
