I found an E-Book online to help me out with making my fishing lures. It actually really helped me out and it is only 4.99. It tells you everything you need to know to start making your own lures. It sure helped me and can help you too! Here is a link to the website where you can purchase it.

Ben W says:

awesome video and really well demonstrated, but by the time I spend money buying all this stuff to make the lures, and waited for them to arrive, then made them, and tested them, I could have just walked up the road to my local angling store and bought a few, or ordered them online, I see this as more of an art and satisfaction of making it yourself no matter what the cost, than being cost effective – as I said, great video but I haven’t the time, money, patience or skill to make these 🙂 no offence intended

Alfredo Valdez says:

I love watching your videos man. Question: how do you get your lures to look glossy. Almost completely see-through

Phil Carr says:

Great video! Loved how you repurposed that pasta maker for rolling out the clay! Much more even than using a doe roller.
Just a very good, straight forward how to video!

I like your channel Paul, great ideas and good quality work, I want to try and make a few pike lures, i have already made some floats which looked great after they were varnished!

Troll Sweex says:

you would describe the ingredients mer Hungarian I’m only looking for English because the better

R3PLAY-Minecraft&More says:

The first 10 minutes of the video (making the model) is completely unnecessary. Just get a soft plastic you like, make a mould for it and put the glue in the mould.

Chris W says:

Does the liquid pvc dry out if not used in a short time after you’ve opened the container?
