Nothing feels better than eating a fish you caught on a lure you made. This lure is an easy project and could be done with young children but the hooks and knife are sharp.

Step 2: Materials and Tools

Step 9:

This is an updated version. The hooks go throughout the body so they aren't pulled out easily. I fly tied two hooks together an made a tail. Then, I cut a slot in the bottom and put the hook in the cork and glued it in. I punched a hole in the cap to fit over the eyes of the hooks and screwed it in.

Really great idea, I know I'm a little late to comment. But I can't wait to use this

Thanks. I did not think of that. I will give it a shot tomorrow and post it if I'm successful.

This is a great idea! However, I'd run a wire completely through the cork to create/secure the rear hook to the eye or swivel where your line will be tied. A small bass will pull those eye hooks from the cork in seconds.
