Make Your Own Fishing Lures: Wooden Lures
The complete resource for making homemade fishing lures. You’ll go back to this eBook over and over again! Over 100 pages of top notch information to get you on the right track:
Chapter 1: Design. Serious lure fisherman want a range of lure styles so they can catch fish under any conditions. That’s why I’ve covered all types of crankbaits and lipped jerkbaits (all diving depths, sinking, suspending, lipless, jointed). Plus, we go through stickbaits, gliders, poppers, propbaits and even touch on swimbaits.
Chapter 2: Tools & Equipment. I find it therapeutic to make professional quality homemade lures with nothing more than a handsaw, battery drill, pliers, chisel and sandpaper – and I’ll show you how. But we’ll look at more sophisticated tools, machines and equipment too.
Chapter 3: Materials. This chapter will save you a ton of wasted time and money. You’ll know what wood to use, for starters – and that alone will save you a lot of dud lures. But I also explain the other materials and hardware that can be used to make homemade fishing lures.
Chapter 4: Techniques. This is the meat and potatoes. Find out tricks for weighting, through wiring, carving, lathe turning, making rattles and so on. Fast, simple, proven, reliable techniques. And once you’ve learned them, you’ll be able to make awesome lures for the rest of your life.
Chapters 5 & 6: Painting. There’s nothing that speaks more about the quality of your homemade fishing lures than the paint job you put on them. And you want to blow your fishing buddies minds with your DIY lures, right? That’s why I break down and simplify hand painting and airbrushing your lures in these chapters.
Proven Wooden Lure Templates
Printable With Tool/Materials Lists
One of the keys to my success in teaching people how to make homemade fishing lures has been my template packs.
After all, when you’re first getting started you’re trying to master the techniques at the same time as you learn about the lure design. So if your hard-earned lure turns out to be a dud you have to figure out whether it’s your design or your technique that’s at fault.
My template packs change all of that! When you make one of my project lures you can be confident that the design and materials work. That means you can focus on perfecting your technique. As your skills improve you can modify my designs to suit yourself, or design your own homemade fishing lures knowing that your building skills are good.
These eBooks are in pdf format, and each contains 12 printable lure templates with step-by-step instructions and a full tools and materials list. Gold!

Bonus 1: Crankbait Templates And Video Tutorials
3 Bonus Printable Templates, 90 minutes Video Tutorials
Hand carved crankbaits are among the most popular styles of homemade fishing lures. They’re also one of my favorites because they’re like magnets to game fish.
That’s why I’ve put together these awesome bonus tutorials, each one with a printable template, step by step instructions and a video tutorial!
Here’s a quick rundown of the projects:
Squarebill Charlie: A 2.5″ (65mm) shallow running crankbait/jerkbait with a full through wire and square diving lips for a more erratic action. This lure runs at around 3′ (1m) and can be worked with plenty of rod tip movement to create an enticing, erratic action.
Murring: A 3.5″ (85mm) medium running crankbait that reaches around 8-10′ (2.5-3m) diving depth. The Murring has a strong wiggle and is one of my most productive homemade fishing lures. It contains a through wire and optional rattles. The action is balanced by some internal weight, making the lure effective over a wide range of cranking speeds.
Deep Flattie: A 4″/100mm deep diving (20′, 6m plus) through wired crankbait with optional rattles. This lure has been responsible for a number of my personal trophy catches over the years!
Bonus 2: Handmade Stickbait Mini-Course
3 Bonus Templates, Video Tutorials And Instructions
Stickbaits are great fun to fish with. There’s something about watching fish smash your homemade fishing lures off the surface that gets the heart pumping! In fact, I’ve had so many people ask for help making stickbaits that I decided put together this short course and add it to the Mega Pack as a Free Bonus!
My aim was to create something super simple. Something even a complete beginner with hardly any tools could easily do. Something to get you catching fish on your handmade lures before you could say “Fish On!”
Here’s what I’ve packed into the mini-course:
Stickbait Lesson 1: We get into the nuts and bolts of designing stickbaits that work every time. Like any homemade fishing lure, you can waste a lot of time and effort if your design or materials aren’t great. So let’s fix that right off the bat! Then we’ll make our first stickbait project, and as always I’ll give you a printable template, full instructions and a video tutorial to ensure you succeed.
Stickbait Lesson 2: What’s just as important, or more important, than knowing how to make stickbaits? Knowing how to fish your homemade lures in ways that get bone shuddering strikes! Seriously, if you haven’t caught fish on stickbaits before, you need to experience this! So in Lesson 2 I go through everything you need to know to fish your stickbaits like a pro. And we’ll finish off with yet another project template and video tutorial…..
Stickbait Lesson 3: This is where we start to trick up our stickbaits, so I cover rattles, tips for making heavy duty offshore stickbaits and so on. And we make stickbait project number 3 (yep another template and video).
Bonus 3: Lure Fishing Guides
Tips For Using Homemade Fishing Lures
Making homemade fishing lures is great…… but the real aim is to catch better fish, right? MUCH better fish! So I wrote these guides many years ago to help folks get the best out of crankbaits and jerkbaits. But the information in them is as relevant today as it was back then.
eBook: How To Use Jerkbaits
This 50 page eBook goes through the ins and outs, nuts and bolts of using bib jerkbaits. Lot’s of folks think jerkbait fishing is a winter or early spring activity. But I’ve found them to be deadly all year round. In this eBook I cover the tackle, techniques and strategies for not only your homemade fishing lures, but for bought ones as well!
eBook: Mastering Crankbaits, Minnows And Other Fishing Plugs
Crankbaits are the most diverse group of hard bodied lures…… and they probably catch more fish than just about any other style. Chucking them out into the water and cranking them back will catch you a few fish, but getting the best from them requires a little more knowledge. In this eBook I cover the different styles of crankbait and how to use them, tackle, techniques and lots of pro tips.
eBook: Why Fish Don’t See Your Lures
Ever wondered how fish really see lures? As a trained scientist I’ve invested plenty of time answering this question. There are plenty of myths and misconceptions out there, but this eBook gives you the irrefutable
