Introduction: Easy Fishing Lures

About: i am 16 year old,soon 17, kid . i am from Serbia . I am now 2nd grade in High School and i like making simple things because i am learning through that. i am really interested in electronics, bikes, and fishing

I love fishing. I have house on lake and i am almost every week there. If i cant go to lake , then i am on river Danube. Danube is big river with a lots of fish. But there is a problem. Every time i go to danube,  my fishing lures gets stucked onto the rock and i nee to cut my nylon. So i lost few lures every month...They arent expensive just few $ each. but if you lost many lures as i did then you are getting into serious expenses.
To avoid that, i started to dig into my grandfather fishing tools. I found few amazing homemade fishing lures. They look nice, and my uncle said that he and my gradnfather catched a lots of fishes with that kind of homemade lures.
Because i am not skilled like my grandfather, i  make some lures which are really easy to make and costs only few cents ...

Step 1: Materials

For materials you will need paperclip ,  hook ( i used one with 3 ends) , little bit of electrical tape  and rubber from pencil

Step 2: Making

its really simple. just take the paperclip and slide hook into it.....after the hook is into the place take the tape and secure paperclip
then use rubber from pencil and cover the paperclip

see pictures

Step 3: Is It Working?

Yes its working great. Also i was fishing with it few days and i didnt lost any. Why? Because they dont have big lead  heads  like twisters have so they cant stuck onto the rocks .
Also did i catch something? Yes i caught  20 or more Esox Lucius or luce on english.
Before i catched first fish i was thinking that it will broke because its only paperclip but it didnt. I used only one and it didnt broke and i didnt lost it.
its great and cheap, and i am also getting money from bets because everytime when i am fishing people comes and says that i cant catch anything, so we make a bet and i win.....

Have a great day...

    i saw this and said...why not?

    grabbed clips out of the junk drawer, some heat shrink tubing and a few barbless hooks

    red and black were the two most successful colors

    just tied them onto my fly rod and caught bass, bluegill and crappie

    if a person were to get ambitious they might try tying a skirt on the hooks...i just used squirrel tail and some bright colored thread...worked a treat
