Simple fishing lures? Answered

Back in the day my grandfather use to make all sorts of artificial lures for us.
From a simple spoon like thingy over spinners all the way to massive 300g killers to catch cod in the sea.

I know how to make my own flies and have enough ideas for the rest but there must simpler ways then what comes to my mind..

They all aim for the latest and most fancy ones as seen on TV LOL
Guess I first need to show that homemade can work at least as good as expensive from the shop.
