After purchasing a lightweight canoe that fits on top of my car and spending most of the the summers of 2010and 2011 fishing, I decided to expand my hobby by trying my hand at making some fishing lures. This is how I went about doing it!
This is a great idea to pass some time during long, cold winters (if you have them and don't ice-fish).
Step 1: Tools and Materials
Don't be alarmed, most of the specialty tools are cheap, and most people have tools they could substitute in.
Various drill bits
Coping saw (for precision cutting)
Knife for whittling (multitool)
Sharpies (fine and wide tips)
Sandpaper (coarse and fine grit)
Pliers or vice grips
Superglue of some kind (waterproof if possible)
Wood of your choice ( I used a 1"x1" piece of pine from home improvement establishment)
Large popsicle stick or shim of wood (from craft store)
Paint (I used craft paint-its gonna be clear coated)
Wood sealant (Use polycrylic!)
Wood putty (for filling in holes/mistakes)
Googly eyes (from craft store)
Small eyelets(use the smallest you can find or order from lure parts supplier online)
Propellers (OPTIONAL)(from lure parts supplier online or make your own)
Split rings (for attaching hooks)
That "torpedo" is the half-finished product you can make using this instructable.
